Welcome

Welcome! This is where it all began. I no longer post on this website and some of the content reflects former convictions and understandings. Some of these posts are hard core on issues that I am softer on these days. I deleted many posts that I feared would lead people into legalism, so if you find a missing hyperlink that may be why. These days I write at Covered By His Hand.

Swine Flu Vaccine Problems

I have had another vaccination post in my saved box for days, waiting to be proof read... but then, Paul called me this morning to tell me about new reports about the Swine Flu Vaccine and problems with the central nervous system.

Be sure to read this article! Here are the key points, they had them in bold print (this size!, I cut and pasted it). This is speaking of the US swine flu epidemic, and its relation to Guillain-Barre Syndrome (an autoimmune disorder), in 1976:
  • More people died from the vaccination than from swine flu.
  • 500 cases of GBS were detected.
  • The vaccine may have increased the risk of contracting GBS by eight times.
  • The vaccine was withdrawn after just ten weeks when the link with GBS became clear.
  • The US Government was forced to pay out millions of dollars to those affected.
Vaccination is always a sensitive topic. So, to help combat lunatics who say the vaccines cause autism or that the program is a front for Obama's secret socialist re-education camps (I've already said too much...), the Center for Disease Control has set aside $4.8 million for a multimedia campaign to educate the public about vaccination. The campaign will use Twitter and podcasts, in addition to print, radio and television ads, to remind the public to get both the H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines.
Who says I don't give you both sides of the issue? Hee, hee, hee

Sorry about your pain....rest :-) I am not sure what I think about vaccines. Obviously in Uganda we need to recieve a few that could save a life (ie rabies, yellow fever, etc).

Thank you for keeping up with the news and info on these medical issues, since we don't watch tv or get newspapers it's very helpful to get this information from you.
