The CDC’s own research has found that the long denied vaccine-SIDS link is real.If you believe the official pronouncements of top governmental health agencies like the CDC and FDA, all the vaccines in the present day schedule are a priori safe and effective.
Not only are you told that they can’t harm you, but that not taking them can kill you.
Parents are under even more pressure. They are told that refraining from vaccinating their infants or children will greatly increase their risk of dying or being disabled. Worse, they are increasingly labeled as ‘crazy’ and ‘irresponsible’ anti-vaccine zealots who are putting the lives of others in danger.
But what happens when the actual evidence from the scientific and clinical literature produced by these very agencies contradicts their own vaccine policies?
This is exactly what has happened with the publication of a new study in the Journal of Pediatrics titled ,”Adverse Events following Haemophilus influenzae Type b Vaccines in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, 1990-2013,” wherein CDC and FDA researchers identify 749 deaths linked to the administration of the Hib vaccine, 51% of which were sudden infant death linked to the administration of Hib vaccine…
A concerning new study suggests that decades of medical procedures performed on infants without pain management has had deeply traumatizing effects.
A groundbreaking study … demonstrates that the infant pain experience, despite long held assumptions to the contrary, closely resembles that of adults.
Researchers discovered that when 1-6 day old babies were exposed to the same pain stimulus as adults their brains “lit up” in almost exactly the same manner. More specifically, infant and adult pain responses were indistinguishable in 18 of the 20 regions observed through fMRI imaging. The only two brain regions that pain did not show activation in the infants were the amygdala and the orbitofrontal cortex: two regions believed to help with the interpretation of pain stimuli…
While not specifically mentioned in the study, the practice of male infant circumcision may constitute the most egregious example of a medically unnecessary procedure. It is arguably responsible for extensive psychological and emotional damage within the male psyche due to the unacknowledged pain and trauma it has exacted in the millions that have involuntarily undergone it without adequate pain management.
Indeed, male infant circumcision is 1 of 6 of the most commonly performed medical procedures and responsible for 1.108 million hospital stays in 2011. The United States has the highest circumcision rate in the world, with an estimated rate of 69-97%, followed by 70% in Australia, 48% in Canada, and 24% in the United Kingdom. This is all the more concerning considering that circumcision is one of the least medically justified interventions from the perspective of evidence-based medicine.

This only happened after research emerged showing behavioral differences in infant and mother-infant dyad behaviors between anesthetized and unanesthetized infants…
Considering what has been revealed by the new study, we must ask: how many infants have had been deeply traumatized not only via partial dismemberment of an important component of their reproductive and eliminative anatomy, but through the pain and anxiety associated with such a medical ritual which lacks unequivocal clinical research support for safety, efficacy, and any of its purported health benefits?
We hope that research like this will raise a flag of extreme caution when it comes to the increasingly prevalent over-medicalization of our most vulnerable populations. In other words, the solution is not simply to increase conventional pain management strategies which have many unintended, adverse effects — even with seemingly more benign over-the-counter drugs like Tylenol, which was recently found to have psychotropic properties such as flattening affect. The focus, therefore, should be on reducing overdiagnosis, overtreatment, and the uncritical implementation of a standard of care which errs on the side of aggressive and invasive procedures.
We’re only as sick as our secrets. Keeping secrets is cultural programming, fear, guilt and shame. There is no real need for secrets. They serve no good purpose other than to tie us in knots. Let them all go.
May we all reclaim the courage we need to makes our lives open books and to be truly free and alive. In my own life, I have found that being truly honest is more of a thrill than skiing down a snowy slope. It always brings people closer and ultimately brings happy results. Meet Bruce Muzik…
It’s important to be clear that the word “incurable” in modern medical parlance means only that doctors do not yet know what to do for a particular disease or condition. An example of a condition that is supposedly irreversible, incurable and not preventable is Alzheimer’s disease. The news from researchers and people who have been courageously dabbling with a radical non-pharmaceutical “treatment” (coconut oil – see link to preliminary research below) indicates that Alzheimer’s is neither irreversible nor incurable, and that means that it also is preventable. Many “new cures” confirm the wisdom of Hippocrates’ dictum, “Let food be your medicine”. Indeed, pure foods are safer and much less expensive than drugs.
Relatively few of us suffer directly from Alzheimer’s, but many of us suffer from losing our family members to Alzheimer’s. And yet one needn’t wait for Alzheimer’s to strike. Fact is, we all may benefit from the addition of coconut oil to our daily routines. When the man in this video – Steve Trueblue – joined his 85-year-old father in the daily coconut experiment, he reported that his own physical strength and recovery curve improved significantly. At the same time, both he and his mother achieved deeper relaxation and better sleep. Steve credits coconut oil for his greater stamina and mental clarity plus an increased ability to focus on what he is engaged in doing. It also helped him from being sidetracked into eating and drinking unnecessarily. An added benefit is that it appears to help some people lose weight because it ends overeating.
Athletes have known about the benefits of coconut oil for a very long time, but the Alzheimer’s issue only came to the public’s attention when Dr Mary Newport tried feeding her stricken husband coconut oil – and his mental faculties returned. She has since written a book and has been given a grant to study the subject. It sounds as if the grant requires her to frame the “cure” in terms more mysterious than “coconut oil”. The KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle means don’t get more complicated than is absolutely necessary.
I had a personal friend whose father’s dementia problems were reversed when his wife fed him coconut oil daily, years before Mary Newport released her findings. Dr.Mary has been given a grant to study the use of coconut oil and its effects. Preliminary studies were independently performed in Spain and the [happy] results were released in December of 2015 by The National Institutes of Health. The Spanish study found that taking 3 tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil each day resulted in “improvement in cognitive status, improving especially women’s, those without diabetes mellitus type II, and severe patients.” I’ll be interested to read the followup study.
If you or yours suffers from mental – or physical – issues, coconut oil is certainly worth a try… and besides, organic coconut oil tastes good! For many years we were told to avoid all fats, but since the brain contains more cholesterol than all the rest of the body, we might have been starving it by denying it what it needs – good, clean, pure fatty foods. Avocados are another amazing source of vegetable fat, as are olives and all seeds and nuts and beans. A bottle of oil on the grocery shelf (olive oil, sunflower seed oil, etc) means that the food it came from might be a beneficial addition to the diet. These sites are run by researchers and MDs who love to scour medical research for findings that support the idea that food is indeed the very best medicine of all:
