Worried About the Swine Flu?

If so, you're not the only one. I mean, the way the media is sensationalizing it, it's tough not to be fearful of this "pandemic". Thing we have to ask ourselves is whether or not our fear is warranted. Is it? I don't know. It's hard to tell. I don't know if anyone knows. A couple of things I do know:
1. The media inflates everything. It brings ratings. Fear breeds viewers, readers, etc.
2. Big Pharma wants you to buy their vaccines. Period. Plain and simple. The more fear induced, the more money they make. Sad but true.

So what do we do? I think Dr. Bob at has some great pointers on how to stay healthy in a natural way. Check out his blog:

Dr. Bob's Blog

There's No Such Thing as A Safe Drug

I'm baaaaaaaaaack! I know it's been FOREVER, and I'm pretty sure no one even checks this blog anymore, but I have some info to share. Check out this article I found on Fox News this morning:

Pain Relievers Like Tylenol, Advil to Carry 'Bolder' Warnings of Liver Damage, Stomach Bleeding

We all need to realize that drugs were not created for us to be dependent upon. They were created with the intention of helping us 'get over the hump', to get back on our feet. If you are constantly taking Tylenol, Advil, asprin, etc., you are putting yourself at major risk of liver damage and stomach bleeding. The same goes for what you give your children. What do you think the risks are to children who have been given these drugs spanning from infanthood to adulthood??? There are better ways. Do your research. Don't wait to use natural alternatives as your last resort.

If You Have Kids...


Doctors Urge FDA to Recall Cold Medicines for Children

PLEASE don't give this stuff to your precious kids. I know you just want to help them. I know you do, but no research has shown that cold medicines actually help kids. Really, all we've seen are dangerous and potentially deadly side effects.

Your kids WILL recover from their colds, naturally. They need no medicine for that. God created their bodies to heal. Trust His creation.

BPA...The FDA Says It's Not Harmful

Research shows otherwise. Check out this article:

FDA Says BPA is OK Despite Concerns Raised in New Study

According to the article, "A study released Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association suggested a new concern about BPA. Because of the possible public health implications, the results "deserve scientific follow-up," the study authors said. Using a health survey of nearly 1,500 adults, they found that those exposed to higher amounts of BPA were more likely to report having heart disease and diabetes."

Educate yourself and take the necessary precautions. Sadly, you can't depend on the FDA to always look out for your best interests.

MILLIONS Affected by Drugs in Their Drinking Water

Do you live in Georgia, Alabama, Nevada, or Colorado? If so, I have news you need to read. If you live elsewhere...guess what? You need to read it to. If it's happening here and affecting myself and my fellow neighbors, it could very well be happening where you live too.
Wonder what I'm talking about?

Testing prompted by an Associated Press about trace amounts of pharmaceuticals in drinking water has shown that more Americans are affected by the problem than previously thought -- at least 46 million.

46 million people are ingesting drugs that are not meant for them through their drinking water. We're bathing in it, soaking it into our skin. We're cooking with it, giving it to our children. Does this sound safe to you? It's no wonder so many people are so sick. It's no wonder immune systems are constantly weakened and people are getting cancer right and left.
This, my friends, is dangerous. I don't care how much the FDA tries to convince us that these drugs aren't affecting us, think about it. How could they not?

More on Measles

All I can say is WOW! Barbara Loe Fisher does it again. She takes a stern look at the CDC's finger pointing and lays out loads of facts on the MMR vaccine, measles, and today's newest controversial vaccine, Gardasil. Check it out:

Gardasil Meets Measles: A Coincidence?

The Great Measles Epidemic of 2008

I'm sure you've seen the stories. I certainly have. I've been emailed, anonymously told on this blog, and I also read the news. It would be hard to miss. Wondering what I'm talking about? Take a look at this news story:

Measles Outbreak May be Linked to Vaccine Fears

In this article, they take many shots at families who choose not to vaccinate. Those families, families like my own, are having the finger pointed at them because of the current measles outbreaks (which, in the big scheme of things, there is NO epidemic). Funny thing is, if you read the very first sentence in this news story you see something a little (ok, a lot) contradictory. Let me show you:

"Measles cases in the U.S. are at the highest level in more than a decade, with nearly half of those involving children whose parents rejected vaccination, health officials reported Thursday."

Did you catch what I caught when you read the opening sentence? If not, let me show you what caught my eye.
"...with nearly half of those involving children who parents rejected vaccination..."
Nearly half. Not the total group, not half, nearly half.
Webster's dictionary defines "nearly" this way: 1: in a close manner or relationship, 2 a: almost but not quite.

So, based on Webster's definition and the article on, almost, but not quite half of the measles cases came from unvaccinated children. NOT QUITE HALF. So that means that the other half, or actually slightly more than half, came from VACCINATED children. Funny how the news and the CDC can spin things, huh?

Seems to me, the CDC should be examining why the half who were vaccinated got the measles. The story even goes on to say that some of the unvaccinated children were too young for the vaccine. That is why they had not received it. See again, the families who choose not to vaccinate are being blamed for those numbers too. Somehow they got grouped in with the rest of us. Fair? No. Accurate? No.

Later, the article flips and gives a higher number for unvaccinated children. Honestly, the article is filled with inconsistencies. Regardless, I'm going to share with you what I shared with a friend who sent me this article:

While I certainly wouldn't like to see my boys get the measles, I trust that they would survive if they got it. Based on the facts that they are healthy, well-adjusted, and have good nutritional habits, I think they would get through measles and would then develop a life long immunity to it, just as they will chicken pox.

Like any parent who loves their children, I hate to see my kids suffer. I would feel terrible for them if they were to contract measles; however, I am much more willing to watch them conquer the measles than to suffer a disabling side effect from the MMR vaccine.

Not only have I see a lot of research on the dangerous ingredients in the vaccine, I have also read testimony after testimony of parents who had totally normal children pre-vaccine, and literally hours after receiving the MMR vaccine, they had zombies.
Also, as a Christian, I absolutely disagree with the choice of using human diploid cells from aborted fetal tissues in the vaccine (as listed in the MMR vaccine packet). Abortion is wrong, so why is it ok to use aborted fetal tissues? Because they're dead anyway? It's wrong. I don't want my children to have any part of that.

In the MMR pamphlet, there is a section under "Warnings":
They tell anyone currently with or who has a family history of convulsions, cerebral injury, or any other condition in which stress due to fever should be avoided.

My aunt has epilesy and convulsions.

The pamphlet also says, "As for any vaccine, vaccination with the MMR II may not result in protection in 100% of vaccines."

So it may not protect my kids from an illness that nearly all kids in America would be able to recover from, but may cause permanent disability? For me and our family, we find the risk to outweigh the benefits.

As for this big measles outbreak among the unvaccinated, history has shown many outbreaks among the vaccinated. However, with more parents opting out of vaccines, of course the CDC wants to highlight today's unvaccinated spreading measles. Of course.

Here is a super informative article that highlights even more information on the MMR vaccine. Check it out:

The MMR Vaccine: What the Manufacturer's Insert Tells Us

The CNN article also says:

"Pediatricians are frustrated, saying they are having to spend more time convincing parents that the shot is safe."

"This year, we certainly have had parents asking more questions," said Dr. Ari Brown, an Austin, Texas, physician who is a spokeswoman for the American Academy of Pediatrics."

I'm sorry, what? Pediatricians are frustrated because they are having to calm parents fears? They are frustrated because they're having to answer questions about the safety of vaccines? Because parents want to be informed BEFORE they put potentially dangerous chemicals into their most precious cargo, their children? Really, pediatricians? That is frustrating to you? For those parents who are questioning your child's healthcare, I APPLAUD you! You are doing your job as a parent. Keep up the good work! Oh, and there are great pediatricians out there who are eager to answer the questions you have. I encourage you to find one of those. Don't settle for someone who gets irritated because you want to know what you're doing to your kids before you do it.
