The Antibiotic Resistance Crisis and Vaccines

Ever since the discovery of the antibiotic commonly known as penicillin in the late-1920s, antibiotic drugs have transformed the face of modern medicine.1 Antibiotics have historically played an instrumental role in successfully treating bacterial infections.2 However, the overuse and misuse of these medications over the last few decades has created many challenges, including the growing problem of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

In 1954, Sir Alexander Fleming, the Scottish physician and pharmacist who discovered penicillin, warned that the misuse of antibiotics would result in a era of antibiotic resistant bacteria.3 Antibiotic resistance occurs when an antibiotic drug loses its ability to effectively control or kill bacterial growth to which they were once sensitive.4

Antibiotic resistance has become a global threat.4 New bacterial resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, which threaten the ability to treat common infectious diseases. Infections such as tuberculosis, blood poisoning, gonorrhea and foodborne diseases are becoming challenging to treat as antibiotics become less effective.4

Factors Contributing to Antibiotic Resistance

The over-prescription of antibiotics by physicians for viral infections and minor bacterial infections during the past half century is the most significant factor contributing to antibiotic resistance.5 According to a report published in Pharmacy and Therapeutics:

The overuse of antibiotics clearly drives the evolution of resistance. Epidemiological studies have demonstrated a direct relationship between antibiotic consumption and the emergence and dissemination of resistant bacteria strains.3

Data on the number of antibiotics prescribed by physicians in the United States indicates that these medications are inappropriately prescribed.3 An analysis of the IMS Health Midas database that estimates antibiotic consumption based on the number of antibiotics sold in retail and hospital pharmacies revealed that in 2010, 22.0 standard units (a unit equaling one dose, i.e., one pill or capsule) of antibiotics were prescribed per person in the U.S.3  Furthermore, studies have shown that treatment indication, choice of specific antibiotic or duration of antibiotic treatment is incorrect in 30-50 percent of cases and that 30-60 percent of the antibiotics prescribed in intensive care units have been found to be unnecessary.3

Incorrect and unnecessary antibiotic therapy can contribute to the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria through genetic alterations such as changes in gene expressions and mutagenesis, which can create “superbugs”.3

FLORIDA ACTION ALERT: Oppose Unconstitutional State Forced Vaccine Tracking!

FLORIDA ACTION ALERT: Oppose Unconstitutional State Forced Vaccine Tracking

ACTION ALERT: Calls and Emails in Opposition Needed Before Florida Legislative Hearing Tuesday 1/23/2018 at 3:30 p.m.

Please, read this http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/action-alert-oppose-unconstitutional-state-forced-vaccine-tracking-your-family-op and take action today!

Thank you!
Sarasota for Vaccination Choice

NOTE: The following is the text of an email from GreenMedInfo.com, which provides a good overview of this situation.


Hello,

As a Floridian and a father of two, I am particularly sensitive to legislation being rolled out in my home state which denies health freedom, as well as privacy — especially when it comes to the specter of coerced or mandatory vaccination. If this were an isolated issue, I would have kept this email segmented to only our Floridian newsletter followers .. but sadly it’s not.

The Nationwide Agenda To Remove Vaccine Exemptions

According to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), between 2015-2017 454-vaccine-related bills were submitted into state legislatures. Most of them aimed, either directly or indirectly, to limit or remove vaccine exemptions. What we are in the midst of, in essence, is a highly orchestrated national campaign, ghostwritten by lobbyists, and underwritten by the vaccine industry (and their government cheerleaders), to thwart basic human rights, such as: 1) bodily self-possession and self-determinism 2) informed consent 3) the parental right to make health decisions regarding ‘preventive’ interventions with potentially fatal side effects for their children.

How We Push Back: Education + Action

Below you will find three articles. The first is the Action Alert put out by the NVIC this morning. Even if you don’t live in Florida, you can help spread the word and forward this to someone who does live there. Within the article you will find concrete action steps to help put these two unconstitutional bills to rest — quickly. Each email or phone call has a multiplier effect from the perspective of our elected officials. Don’t underestimate the power you wield, nor the profoundly greater power we hold collectively — if only we act!

The second is an article written by the founder of Vactruth, and which provides the larger context for this Florida bill (and others around the country soon to be introduced), which is the CDC’s goal to create 95% or greater vaccine compliance, and which entails digital tracking and subsequent aggressive implementation tactics, which will include State coerced or mandated vaccination (if you think this is just “conspiracy theory,” read about the CDC’s recently approved quarantine guidelines: Apprehension, Detainment, and Vaccination for Suspicion of Infection: The CDC’s Quarantine Proposal.)

The third is an article that exposes how the CDC uses an anti-vaccine choice front group called the National Association of County & City Health Officials(NACCHO) to secretly push it’s agenda on the public. 

The fight for health freedom in the Florida is a national fight. Preventing unethical legislation from being passed is much easier than undoing it once its gone through.

Thank you for your help!

New Séralini Study: Untested Glyphosate Formulations Highly Toxic, Loaded With Heavy Metals

EXCERPT:

In light of Séralini’s recent findings, two further studies should be noted. First, on September 2016, the national grassroots coalition Moms Across America issued a press release detailing the findings of glyphosate contamination in five vaccines tested by Microbe Inotech Laboratories, Inc. of St. Louis, Missouri. Second, a 2016 study conducted by Italian researchers found all 43 human vaccines tested were contaminated with heavy metal nanoparticles.

Who Does the Childhood Vaccine Injury Act Protect?

Original here: https://worldmercuryproject.org/news/childhood-vaccine-injury-act-protect/

By Deirdre Imus

The laws of a country are, generally, designed to protect its citizens. How this ideal is interpreted is a topic of debate in various circles, but its goal is lofty, if not quite perfect. Of specific necessity are laws aimed at protecting children, including child abuse, welfare, and labor laws. Of zero necessity, in my view, is the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act(NCVIA), which sounds like it has the best interests of this nation’s young citizens in mind, but actually serves a much different purpose.

Congress passed the NCVIA in 1986, and President Ronald Reagan signed it into law soon after. Taken at face value, the law has some admirable provisions: it established improved communication regarding vaccines across all Department of Health and Human Service agencies; required health care providers who administer vaccines to provide a vaccine information statement to the person getting the vaccine or his or her guardian; and established a committee from the Institute of Medicine to review the literature on vaccine reactions.

Dig a little deeper, however, and the NCVIA does less to protect patients than it does drug companies making vaccines. When Reagan signed the NCVIA, he also created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which allows anyone—children and adults—who have suffered an injury (or worse) following a vaccination to file a claim. To date, it has paid out nearly $4 billion in compensation since 1988, including the 2008 case of Hannah Poling, whose family received more than $1.5 million in a landmark court award for a vaccine-autism claim.

Lifting liability

While this might sound like a good thing, one must read between the lines. The NCVIA also sets limits on the liability of vaccine manufacturers. They don’t have to pay a dime, in most cases, if someone is injured as a result of a product they make. Is there any other industry afforded such immunity? The pharmaceutical industry makes billions of dollars annually producing, promoting, and injecting a product that is known to injure people in myriad ways, and bears zero responsibility when a child—or an adult—suffers as a result.

The system is broken, and it’s why the founders of the nonprofit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), which worked with Congress in the 1980s to get the NCVIA passed, began calling in 2015 for its repeal. In a press release, NVIC co-founder Barbara Loe Fisher noted that the federal vaccine injury compensation program has become “a drug company stockholder’s dream and a parent’s worst nightmare.” In the same document, co-founder Kathi Williams argues that the provisions that their organization helped secure in the law are not being enforced, and most children getting government-recommended vaccines are denied vaccine injury compensation.

“That zero liability rests on the vaccine manufacturers is a travesty of epic proportions.”

I echo their calls for repeal. Children are given between 53 and 56 vaccine doses containing 177 to 232 antigens between birth and age 18. Vaccine reactions range from a mild fever, muscle/joint pain, and injection site swelling to seizures, trouble breathing, vomiting, and permanent brain damage. Though considered “rare” by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these more serious effects admittedly occur, and people suffer. That zero liability rests on the vaccine manufacturers is a travesty of epic proportions.
