I was working on crunching some numbers for my special video dedication to that Douche Bag, Elizabeth Cohen at CNN, when a little something caught my eye.
I was specifically looking at infant mortality rates because of something she tossed out to dazzle us. Her reason WHY vaccines are so great –she called this number “stunning”. Vaccines are a “HUGE reason” for this. HUGE she said, with emphasis!
Holy SHIT! Vaccines saved 93 babies per 1000! Er wait… what? 1900? How about 1985 which was before we really started ramping up the vaccine schedule? Oh, 10.6? …Wow. I am really really stunned, Elizabeth. /sarcasm
I was poking around the Google and found this study which shows the relationship between infant mortality and the number of vaccines that kids get before age one, by country.
The more they get, the more they die.
Then I started to poke around in the various countries themselves, through the tubes of the interwebs and UP POPS this headline:
“This is especially a problem in a country that is slow to add new vaccines and has an immunization schedule that resembles the 1983 immunization schedule from the CDC, with kids only getting DTaP, OPV, Measles and Rubella (2 doses), DT (11 Years).”
Those fuckers! (by the way, when Autism rates were 1 in 150 here in the USA, they were 1 in 475 in Japan –ours being 3.2 times worse than theirs*) ok…. SO…. What is Japan’s Infant mortality rate, considering how careless they are with their vaccine recommendations? 2.17 per 1000. Ranked #2 for allowing their babies to live.
If vaccines are supposed to make us healthier, how come a country with a vaccine “problem” — a country that gives HALF the number of vaccines to their Under-1 set THAN WE DO here in the USA, loses less than half the babies we do? From that 2011 study, using 2009 data: Japan gives 12 vaccines in the first year, 2.79 per 1,000 die. USA gives 26 vaccines in the first year, 6.22 per 1,000 die.
Yeah. What a fucking problem. OK, sure… I know what you are thinking…. Their kids probably die in Kindergarten from Chicken Pox! Japan life expectancy 81.25 years USA 78.74.
Try again. Japan doesn’t have a problem. The vaccine manufacturers have a profit problem.
Oh and, we have more babies die in the first 24 hours than any other industrialized nation. Couldn’t possibly be the flu shots full of mercury that mom got while pregnant and the Hep B on the first day of little Johnny’s life. Nah. I am sure that is a coincidence. It’s ALL a coincidence.
After all… say it with me now, “Vaccines are the leading cause of coincidence in this country!”
[*The other countries who do a great job at allowing their babies to live, give the same amount of vaccines as Japan, but had even BETTER autism rates. Our kids had anywhere from a 5.7 to 14.6 higher chance of getting autism than in Nordic countries. I can speculate as to why Japan’s autism rate is not as good as theirs –it would involve the legacy of Minamata, mercury contamination in fish, etc.]
[Editing to add some info my friend, David Anderson, posted on Facebook this morning:
Did you know… (and do PLEASE note the total lack of tin foil in my sourcing)
The “Danish Study” establishing no-link between Autism and Vaccines conducted by Danish national Poul Thorsen and his MMR safety study are the reason you think vaccines don’t cause autism. He was indicted by a federal judge in Atlanta 3 years ago for fraud: he embezzled $2M of CDC funds that were supposed to fund his research. He remains at large.

And, if you did your own homework, you would see that the rising rates of Autism for the past THIRTY years are in lock step with increases to our own vaccine schedule.”]
