New Study: Hepatitis B Vaccine Damages The Liver

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist March 30, 2012

When Jodi Ferris unknowingly unleashed the wrath of Social Services at Penn State Hershey Medical Center by questioning the necessity of the Hepatitis B vaccine for her newborn daughter, little did she know just how big a can of worms she was opening.

A study reported in the journal Apoptosis just weeks ago indicates that this controversial vaccine normally injected into newborns within hours of birth induces liver damage primarily due to the presence of the toxic vaccine adjuvant aluminum hydroxide.

Aluminum hydroxide, an adjuvant also present in the anthrax vaccine, has already been shown as a likely culprit for triggering the motor neuron autoimmunity issues present in Gulf War Syndrome which are indistinguishable from the autoimmune disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Vaccine adjuvants like aluminum hydroxide are the dirty little secret that the scientific community doesn’t want the public to know about.  Their purpose is to stimulate and heighten the immune response to the vaccine itself.

In this new study, aluminum hydroxide induced loss of mitochondrial integrity and cell death in mouse liver cells exposed to low doses of the Hepatitis B vaccine containing the toxic adjuvant.

The mitochondria is the “powerhouse” of a cell where energy is created and cellular respiration occurs.  It is not surprising that compromising the mitochondria of liver cells results in outright death of the cell itself.

This new study corroborates other research indicating liver damage from Hep B.  In 1999, it was found that children less than 6 years old had a nearly 300% increase in the incidence of liver problems if they had been vaccinated with Hepatitis B versus those children that did not have the Hep B jab.

It’s not just the young developing livers of children that suffer from the toxic Hep B.   The Journal Hepatogastroenterology reported in 2002 that the Hepatitis B vaccine was statistically associated with increased risk for hepatitis, gastrointestinal disease, and liver function test abnormalities in adult females.

Did you get that?

The Hepatitis B vaccine is statistically associated with increased risk for hepatitis in adults!

A more recent study in June 2011 reported by the journal Molecular Biology Reports indicates that damage from Hep B is likely caused by alteration in the expression of 144 genes in mouse livers within one day of vaccination, 7 of which are associated with inflammation and metabolism.

The Only Sane Answer is Rejection of the Hepatitis B Vaccine

To date, 50+ negative health effects from the Hepatitis B vaccine have been documented in peer-reviewed, published literature.

The thing that makes absolutely zero sense is why the controversial and very questionable Hepatitis B vaccine is still being recommended as standard for all newborns within hours of birth especially given that a newborn’s liver does not even begin functioning until several days later.

With no functioning liver to assist with detoxification, the damaging effects of the toxic Hep B ingredients would no doubt be magnified with the risk of irreparable harm to the newborn great.

If you are a parent with a baby on the way, please do your research and learn the extreme danger of the Hepatitis B vaccine to your newborn.

Even if you have been supportive of vaccination in the past, at least skip this one controversial shot that has so much documented literature about its damaging effects. 

There is simply no logical reason to vaccinate all newborns against a disease that is primarily sexually transmitted or contracted via the used needles of drug addicts.  Better to screen mothers preemptively rather than vaccinate all newborns with this dangerous drug cocktail that threatens their long term health.

  1. It seems that one thing we need to do to restore and affirm parents’ rights and responsiblities is to get state legislatures to enact laws against and punishments for hospitals and doctors who attempt to override parents in this. I can just imagine the field day state and county social services will have with parents who try to protect their children. Parents – be prepared for legal fights over custody. I do not mean to scare you off from stepping up to protect your babies, but go about it with open eyes. Sadly, hospitals and doctors are our sacred cows. They must not dictate to our lawmakers any longer. In turn, of course, they are incentivised by the pharmaceutical giants. Free lunches, golf trips, cruises, holiday “seminars” in exotic resorts, etc. “Pharma Christmas”. Of course most of them are in the bag. We need to call this by its proper name: corruption. It is this system which is diseased. If we had addressed this honestly withoutfear of upsetting said sacred cows, if we had demanded transparency in our lawmakers, we would have cleaned up this mess and even avoided the fall into Obamacare – the next level of hell. Perhaps at this stage we need an advocacy for parents who wish to protect their children and inform themselves about risks. It’s easy to tell a mother to refuse a dangerous vaccination or treatment for her child, but then what? What happens when social services (the Gestapo of sacred cows) takes the child away? It’s happened too often Parents are left to weigh between allowing a toxic substance to injected into their baby against their will and conscience and watching a social worker confiscate the child (and we know vaccination will follow). Most parents have other children and jobs and lives to live. They need help. They cannot be expected to forge ahead into a years-long legal battle over child custody. Realism would be a good addition to this discussion. We don’t live in a free country now. We must look for coping mechanisms to protect our children and stay away from social services.

  2. Hi,
    Could the liver damage from Hep shot applies to adult as well? I’m 26 this year and i received the shot in 2010. Since then, my bilirubin level increases marginally every year as shown in yearly regular checkup and only recently it got my attention during my latest blood test this year, indicating 61 umol/L which i think is quite high. Other liver enzymes readings and abdominal ultrasound scan are all in range and normal. Prior to that shot my bilirubin was all the while normal and below 20 umol/L. What should i do? Is there any treatment at this point?

  3. I may be way off here, but could damage to the liver from this shot be a cause in so many allergies in kids now days? For example, why is it that every other kid now days has a peanut or nut allergy? How did these people survive only a few years ago, when all they had was peanut butter and jelly for lunch?

  6. Sara, my son 20 is going into a medical field and they require the hep B. We did some immunizations when he was small but we stopped all by the time he was six. He signed the waiver to not get it. I am concerned but also afraid of the vaccine. Do you have any other information on hepatitis B and how you can prevent contacting it?
    Thank you!

  10. Hi,
    My 7 month old has currently had all her vaccination shots but after doing a lot of research I have decides not to give her anymore vaccines.

    However my dilemma is that I have Hepatitis B which I contracted from birth and may have passed it onto my daughter. What are your thoughts on giving her the full course of the Hep B shots?

    I would greatly appreciate your advice.
    Thank you,

    • If your daughter was fully vaxed for her first 7 months, she has already had all the recommended hep B shots.

      I am confused, though, that you say you contracted hep B from birth. Are you saying that you were born with hep B? Or that you contracted it at the time of your daughter’s birth? Are you ill now?

      Most people who are infected with hep B have no long-term consequences, and end up with antibodies in their system, similar to what the effect is supposed to be from the vaccine.

  12. What a load of BS Sarah ! Any drug that passed approval from the FDA panels must have gone through years of tests with dif. demographics all over the world and safety tests. This Sarah just read something on the internet and without any prove just blasting it like she knows more than all the doctors and medical experts. You don’t need to have sex or drug to get Hep B. kids in the playgrounds and at sport activities do get scratches, body sweats and that is enough to get infected blood in you. Lots of kids from Hep B parents from third world nations who live here don’t even know their kids are carrying the virus. So for the sake of your child safety and Foff your smart ass attitude, get your kids vaccinated. My kids are vaccinated and they are fine.

  14. We adopted our son from Russia when he was 7 months old. Through extensive blood tests after returning to Germany where we lived at the time, it was discovered that he had Hep C. It was recommended that he receive the Hep B vaccine. Our son is 13 years old, very healthy, requires no therapy for his Hep C. His liver function tests have continuously been in the normal range as are his ultrasounds. We don’t know what the future holds but we remain positive and continue to make sure that he lives, breathes and eats as healthy as possible. Do your research, listen to both sides and follow your heart.

  15. This sentence is despicable slander against science: “the dirty little secret that the scientific community doesn’t want the public to know about”. Guess what? The entire article is about a paper published by the scientific community, which it most certainly wants the public to know about. Why did Sarah choose to join in this “conspiracy theory” paranoia about science, which is a “meme” out there, but is falsified by the fact that this “dirty little secret” is revealed by scientists themselves? It’s just junk memes that people mindlessly propagate — or propagate to be sensationalist and grab people’s attention, but at the cost of lying and propagating lies.

    Apart from this flaw, the rest of the article covers very important points. Immunizing infants is utterly unnatural; it would make more sense to immunize the mother while she is nursing.

    Reply
    • “…it would make more sense to immunize the mother while she is nursing” — not that I advocate that either. But infants get much of their immunity through nursing. They even get protected by the bacteria they receive in the birth process. There is a whole world of elaborate biological integration that simple science and medicine of the past never suspected. Whenever we depart from nature, we are changing more than meets the eye. Medical technology can have such powerful beneficial effects that it generates hubris among practitioners and they become cavalier about the hidden downsides of interventions; but discovering the hidden downsides is an important driver of scientific research, as the article in Apoptosis demonstrates.

    • “Why did Sarah choose to join in this “conspiracy theory” paranoia about science,”

      Science is not the bad guy here. True science is apolitical. Operative today in the USA is political “science”. Political science violates all the scientific tenants as it comes to preordained political conclusions by subverting true science.

      A great example of this in action is the sorry saga of Doctor Andrew Wakefield. This brave man showed us that the measles vaccine, NOT the wild measles. was found in the gut of autism victims. For this honest scientific observation which was peer reviewed he was attacked politically, lost his license to practice and was hounded out of his native country.

      This attack was entirely political because he showed evidence against the sacred political cow of “vaccination”.

      Doctor Wakefield’s findings have been confirmed by dozens of other scientists. but thanks to our political “free press” we do not know this

  16. Sarah,
    My children received the Hep B vaccine when they were 5 and 7 years old. When my youngest daughter was 17 she was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis and my older daughter, now 25, recently had blood work and her liver enzymes were elevated. Throughout their teens their liver enzymes were very low. Does it take a number of years for the liver problems to develop after the Hep B vaccine?

  21. “2012 pediatric vaccines are thimerosal-free”

    No they are NOT.

    The average childhood “vaccine” contains about 200 – 400 nanograms of mercury. They are CALLED mercury free because our wonderful cowards in congress passed a LAW giving Big Pharma the right to put mercury in a vaccine and list it as “mercury free” if the amount of mercury is under one microgram. The Big Pharma liars are allowed to list mercury under one microgram as an, wait for it, IMPURITY.

    What is impure is the whole murderous mess we call Big Medicine, Big Pharma and BIg Government.

    Incidentally 400 nanograms of mercury contains about 2 BILLION atoms of mercury each of which harms you.

  23. Shame. The title says “Hepatitis B Vaccine Damages the Liver”. The cited report tests liver cells, IN A PETRI DISH, exposed to high levels of the vaccine and adjuvants.

    A petri dish is not the same as the human body where compounds are sequestered, localized, conjugated, detoxified, removed from the body, etc.

    This is an artificial system and the results DO NOT show liver damage. This is important because it exposes the agendas of those promoting it as though it does. It is dishonest at best, outright lying at the worst.

      Oh please!

      In vitro testing that shows cytotoxic results in and honest world is sure to be followed up by human testing. Are you telling me the deadly hep B poison will now be tested in humans for liver toxicity? If so it will be a modern first. “Vaccines” seem to be “fast tracked” with little to no safety testing beyond the absolute perfunctory.

      Has the hep B toxin been honestly double blind placebo controlled tested? EVER? NO! Has any “vaccine” been honestly double blind placebo controlled tested? NO!

      We do not need to test the hep B toxin. The results of this toxin are plain to see.

    • kevinfolta, you are the one who should be ashamed.

      Your website is a prime example of dishonesty, because you post that thimerosal (which you don’t even spell correctly) prevents autism, because the autism rate increased since 2000, when vaccines supposedly began to be made thimerosal-free.
      2000 pediatric vaccines contain thimerosal autism rate = 1/400
      2012 pediatric vaccines are thimerosal-free autism rate = 1/88

      And gee whiz, you didn’t mention the fact that the 2012 autism rate is based on data collected in 2008, ON BABIES BORN IN 2000 AND GIVEN THIMEROSAL-PRESERVED VACCINES.

      Care to tell you YOUR agenda?

  24. The whole issue of the hep B “vaccination” is so heart breakingly sad; I almost cry even thinking about it.

    The millions of mothers who would rather die than let their precious flesh and blood be harmed are letting very toxic substances be injected into their UNPROTECTED brand new born for NO reason other than that they TRUST the Medical Industry. Their new born has a very WEAK immune system; their new born expects MUCH of his immune support to be delivered in his CONSTANT meal of his mother’s milk. Their new born has NO WAY to defend against the toxins being injected.

    “Because in the immunization procedure foreign pathogenic proteins and toxic adjuvants are placed directly into the body tissues and circulatory system, without censoring by the liver, this gives them accessibility to the body’s vital organs and systems as well as the brain. “Studies have linked neurodegeneration and a worsening of neurodegenerative diseases to systemic immune activation.” Science now understands the inks between systemic immune activation with vaccines, brain microglial activation, and major depressive disorder and a worsening of neurodegenerative diseases. “A number of studies have shown that live viruses used in vaccines can enter the brain and reside there for a lifetime… These viruses can trigger brain inflammation and degeneration – that is, there exist a chronic degeneration of the brain over years or decades. Because the resulting condition is so far separated from the time of administration of the original vaccine, physicians attribute the degeneration to old age or heredity.” Blaylock, R.L., Vaccines, depression, and neurodegeneration after age 50 years: another reason to avoid the recommended vaccines, Medical Veritas No. 5, 2008, pp. 1742—1747..

    Their new born EXPECTS his mother to protect him from ALL threats. Please take the time to critically examine the “hep B vaccination”. You will quickly discover it is totally UNNECESSARY, extremely TOXIC and a THREAT to your newborn especially your newborn; but also your baby; your toddler; your child; your teen; your young adult; your adult and your geriatric. Once you discover “vaccination” is a deadly fraud please pass this information along to your sisterhood. I feel mothers are the only ones that can save us from “vaccination”.

    IMO NEVER trust the Medical Industry again, they have proven they cannot be trusted. If the hep B “vaccination” has given us anything good the OBVIOUS betrayal of our trust is it. Once we discover our trust has been betrayed we should NEVER trust again. Critically examine EVERY medical procedure ESPECIALLY if it is recommended or mandated. MUCH of what the Medical Industry recommends; MUCH of what “government” mandates, is a THREAT to our health.

    If I were having kids now it would be at home.

    “Vaccinating millions of children with the hepatitis B vaccine at birth can only be described as dangerous idiocy. The vast majority of infants, children and adolescents are in no danger from this infection- even the medical authorities agree on that. It is also known that the effectiveness of the vaccine in children last no more than two years and has little or no effectiveness in the immune suppressed child. The nefarious plan by these vaccine geniuses is to force vaccines on all babies, since they would have difficulty convincing adults, that is, the one at any danger, to get the vaccine.” Doctor Russell Blaylock MD

    “Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine had a 3-fold greater risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder. risk was greatest for non-white boys.” Annals of Epidemiology. Carolyn Gallagher and Melody Goodman, Stony Brook University Medical Center

    “Epidemiological studies around the world show vaccines to be the cause of 79% of insulin type I diabetes in children under 10. The increased risk ranged from 9% with the diphtheria vaccine to 50% with the Hepatitis B vaccine.” Bart Classen, MD, PhD, developer of vaccine technologies, British Medical Journal 1999

    “Children who receive the entire 3-shot series of Hepatitis B Vaccine have a 9x higher rate of developmental disabilities than unvaccinated children.” Fourteen Studies

    “15,000 French citizens filed a lawsuit against the French government for understating the risks and overstating the benefits associated with the Hepatitis B vaccine. Hundreds of people were reported to have suffered from autoimmune and neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis, following Hepatitis B vaccination. As a result, in October 1998, the French Minister of Health ended the mandatory Hepatitis B vaccination program for all school children.” Hepatitis B Vaccine Dangers

    “AIDS first showed up in the US where the hepatitis B vaccinations were given.” Note this does not mean of course the hep B vaccines are now also contaminated. But how do you know that some are not? I do not know. You cannot know. Through the magic of “Vaccination Religion” you trust. Is this trust misplaced? IMO yes.

    “Since babies are unlikely to contract hepatitis B and vaccine efficacy declines after a few years babies are being subjected to all the risks of the hepatitis B vaccine without any benefit.” Another deadly worthless “vaccine”

  27. As a fresh immigrant, and health worker I had to undergo a full course of HepB vaccination back in the late 80′s. I was a blood donor for years, thus my blood was regularly screened for HIV/HepB/HepC. After my course of vaccination, I went to donate blood again. For my biggest surprise, I was told, I am “seroconverted” with HepC anti-gene. No, my serology status is still HepC negative, but the surface anti-gene is reactive… I never been unfaithful to my only partner, and I have never received a blood transfusion… This article may explains it.

  29. Have been clearing my kids homeopathically (CEASE therapy) of vaccine damage and the hep B clearings have given us big shifts. Our 6th child as diagnosed 4 years ago with autism. These CEASE clearings have helped her very much. After her first Hep b shot they brought her back to me and she was totally out of it. This vaccine is serious and damaging. The GMO based yeast is in this bugger plus all of the other toxic ingredients have a significant effect on people. I have seen it first hand. This is serious.

      Almost all states with the exception of Mississippi and West Virginia permit some sort of exemption either religious or philosophical. You must find out what the law in your state is and proceed accordingly. People are told all the time that there is no way to opt out of vaccines and in the vast majority of cases, this is simply not true. Find another mother in your area who has opted out and ask her what she did.

  33. I have a question, Sarah. If you were going on a mission trip to a foreign country, what vaccines would you take? My 15-year old daughter just got back from one and had “all her shots” because I didn’t know about any of the vaccine controversy until several years ago AFTER she had gotten them. But either way, if you were a non-vaccine proponent but were considering going to a third-world country, what would you do?

      • I have been given every vaccine under the sun due to my 6 years of service in the USAF serving in both Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I have received even the 6 series anthrax (which burns every time) and the smallpox vac… I have no immunity issues, I can count the number of times I’ve been sick in my lifetime on one hand. The anthrax shots have been “linked” to joint problems… I know NO ONE from the squadrons I deployed with that have joint issues. That’s approx. 300 people in just this scenario. My shot record is about 3 pages long from ages 18-25 only.

        I understand the growing concern for vaccines, and the research findings. But there are a lot of people in this world, and a lot of research experiments are conducted with little conclusive evidence. I believe that some people are at risk for having adverse effects, but to say that vaccines are completely useless is just ignorant.

        I personally have met people who had been affected by Hep B (caught from taking care of his sick father, not sex nor needles), who have dealt with Smallpox and survived with some scarring and trauma compared to those who died from it due to no immunity, also Anthrax… I don’t even wanna get into it.

        I had adverse reactions from the Anthrax series, localized swelling mostly, I’ve seen someone’s whole arm swell… but it subsides and then no further complication. Have you seen what anthrax or smallpox does to people? They don’t prevent us from suffering from the unlikely exposure to anthrax or smallpox, but give us a fighting chance to survive it should it happen. I think that’s mainly the point with most vaccines. I do believe that everyone is unique and that things happen… but it’s a little irresponsible to say that it’s better to get the diseases and rely on our immune system to fight it rather than be immunized. That’s like saying don’t wear a life jacket while white water rafting due to suffocation risk, you don’t need one anyway if you know how to swim.

        The risk either way is far fetched, it’s unlikely you’ll get the disease – though it does happen… it’s unlikely you’ll suffer reactions from the vaccine – though it does happen. Either way, you don’t know what percentage YOU personally, or your child, fall under. At the end of the day, honestly, it’s a 50/50 shot you’re making the right decision.

        My kids have everything up until 18 months when I started reading about the risks… Now since then – nothing – (they just turned 3) I’m taking it one step at a time… I’m still not sure what I’m going to give them to be honest… because there seems to be insufficient evidence either way.

        All I know for sure is that myself and hundreds of soldiers all over the world are getting vaccinated for everything at about 18 years old and not having problems. But I also believe it’s stupid to vaccinate a baby who isn’t going to leave the house or be around anyone for the first 3 months of life. But that one is a strong opinion that might be countered by a mother who did that very thing and ended up with a dead baby due to a preventable disease… so there ya go, it’s just a headache and I wish there was more reliable info out there.

        P.S. to the mother asking about her daughter coming from a mission trip… depends on where you’re going. Going overseas in the middle east – smallpox and anthrax, they use those as bio warfare in rural areas still, you never know if you’re daughter would be in the wrong area at the wrong time… but again… small risk either way.

  36. could be why I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia after I had all of my vaccines for nursing school about 9 years ago. I have had lots of problems since. I still get forced to have the flu vaccine if I want to work in the hospital and as an ICU RN I don’t have much choice. I am now going to school for holistic nutrition and paying for it with the $ from the hospital. It makes me sick to see healthcare making people sick!

    Reply
    • Nichole, I am also an ICU nurse named “Nicole,” and I am right there with you on the mandatory flu vaccine. My body does not handle the flu vaccine well. I take extra fermented cod liver oil and a supplement called “transfer factors” starting a week before the mandatory flu vaccine and lasting one week after the vaccine. I also take lots of hot epsom salt baths after the mandatory injection. When I do not do the epsom salt baths, I feel as though I have the flu after I get the vaccine. Next year, I may buy one of those expensive “magnetic clay” baths, for the chance that they do work to draw out undesirable vaccine ingredients. I refuse to let them give me the flu mist (which is live virus) or any flu injection with thimersol (the multi-dose flu vaccine vials still have thimersol in them), but, of course, the single dose vials still likely have other preservatives and adjuvants in them. My health also took a turn for the worse around the time I went to nursing school. I was forced to get Hep B vaccines for nursing school. Once all of the untoward correlations regarding the Hep B vaccine came out in medical journals, I too wondered if my decline in health had something to do with being forced to have 3 Hep B vaccines in my late 20′s. Last year, my hospital drew pertussis titers on all nurses and made those who lacked immunity get a pertussis vaccine. I am not sure where the mandatory vaccination of hospital employees will end. What next? I do not purport to have the final answer on this issue, but it does seem that there has to be a better way. At the very least, it seems that vaccine consent forms should include current research on possible adverse effects and state all vaccine ingredients. Patients deserve to make informed choices. Perhaps if the public were more aware of what is in the vaccines, there would be pressure on vaccine producers to find alternatives? As for nurses being given the choice between unemployment or receiving vaccines, well, I won’t even get started on that one. Nichole, if you have a chance, please e-mail me through my site and tell me about the nutrition program you are doing. I have been considering such a program for myself in the future. Thank you for writing about this, Sarah! This needs to be talked about!

      • “Last year, my hospital drew pertussis titers on all nurses and made those who lacked immunity get a pertussis vaccine.”

        IMO if you are in this situation again ask a simple question.

        Can you present me with scientific evidence that demonstrates that a ” pertussis vaccination” will lower the odds of contracting pertussis?

        “There are only a handful of deaths attributed to whooping cough in the United States each year, and most of those are infants——some of whom are too young to get the vaccine. So why is the CDC now pushing for every person to be immunized in infancy and then receive five more booster vaccinations as they advance into adulthood and old age? You have almost no chance of getting whooping cough as an infant, and you have even less chance as an adult.” Doctor William Douglass MD, Note Note MANY studies have shown this “vaccine” is near worthless at preventing the disease in the US and MANY countries have banned it. IMO what the CDC et al are doing is suppressing the immune systems of our helpless infants and the rest of us too pure and simple

        “Jordan pointed out that in 1915 the pertussis vaccine became available and was widely given. This bacterial poison from whopping cough, called pertussis coxon, so depresses the immune system that it is used in laboratories today to turn off nutrafils and reduce white blood cell counts. ” Vaccine Induced Cytokine Storm

        “In 1986 there were 1300 cases of pertussis in Kansas and 90 % of these cases occurred in children who had been adequately vaccinated. Similar vaccine failures have been reported from Nova Scotia where pertussis continues to be occurring despite universal vaccination. Pertussis remains endemic[4] in the Netherlands where for more than 20 years 96 % of children have received 3 pertussis shots by age 12 months.” Why-you-should-avoid-taking-vaccines

        That’s right — forget those flu shots. All your kid really needs is a daily dose of vitamin D.” Doctor William Douglass MD, Note 1000 IU of Vitamin D3/20 pounds of body weight/day will protect much better than a toxic “seasonal flu vaccine”. IMO vitamin C, about 1 gram/50 pounds of body weight/day may well protect against Measles and Pertussis both of which are occurring in fully “vaccinated” populations. By extension it is quite possible MANY of the “childhood diseases” we now vaccinate for are but nutritional deficiencies in great part.

        “In New Delhi, India, prior to 2000, ASD/PDD (autism spectrum disorder/pervasive developmental disorder) symptoms were rare — typically only occurring in children who were vaccinated abroad. However, after the Indian pediatricians began recommending, in 2000, the addition of triple-dose Thimerosal-preserved Hib (Haemophilis influenza B) and Hep B (hepatitis B) vaccination programs to the existing Thimerosal-preserved triple dose DTP (diphtheria toxin, tetanus toxin and pertussis toxins) vaccination program recommended by the Government of India, the incidence of a childhood ASD/PDD diagnosis increased to 2 % to 4 % of vaccinated New Delhi children.” Doctor Paul King PhD

        “Furthermore, we should be skeptical about the “outbreaks” that are reported to have occurred. Pertussis, or “whooping cough,” is actually rather difficult to diagnose conclusively, as it requires special cultures or antibody tests that many laboratories cannot perform and that many doctors, in the presence of suggestive symptoms, rarely take the trouble to order. Conversely, there are other cases of pertussis with typical signs and symptoms but negative cultures and no detectable antibodies. In other words, whooping cough as a clinical syndrome need not be associated with the organism Bordetella pertussis, against which the vaccine is prepared, or indeed with any microorganism whatsoever.” Doctor Richard Moskowitz, MD

        “Sweden stopped its whooping cough vaccination program in 1979 when it was discovered that 84 percent of the children who fell ill from the disease had been vaccinated against it three times. And a study published in 1994 in the New England Journal of Medicine noted that more than 80 percent of American children under five with whooping cough had been fully vaccinated.”

        “A CDC study suggests that the resurgence of whooping cough is due to the vaccine causing an increased and more virulent toxin. The CDC acknowledges that whooping cough is recurring in highly vaccinated countries — and that it is not just because some children are unvaccinated, although that can be a factor.”

        Please note our kids are often getting SIX doses of the immune suppressing totally unnecessary Pertussis “vaccination” poison TODAY. If you love your children IMO STOP all “vaccinations” at least until this Political Pandemic is over. There is much puzzlement in the “Medical Industry” as to why young people are falling victim to this “Swine Flu” plague. Five doses of the immune system suppressing Pertussis and puzzlement; IMO someone needs to go to an honest medical school. Does anyone know where to find one?

  38. Angie, as with any vaccine, the older the child is before they get any type of drug, the better they will fare. One of my close friends did choose to vaccinate her child because our children played together, however, he was four before that need arose. You certainly don’t need to do this when they are first born. And as with all medications, do not vaccine your child if their immune system is not functioning well, i.e. if they have a cold, wait until they are well again. And, do not get more than one vaccine at a time.

  39. As a mother of a child with Hep B, I need to another scenario that I have personally struggled with. When you have a Hep B child playing with other children who have not been vaccinated, there is a risk to those children. Hep B is transmitted through body fluids….blood and saliva, not just sexual contact or needle use. I consider using the same drinking glass, sharing toothbrushes, administering first aid with blood involved (if you have a cut) are also very possible ways of contracting Hep B. When children play together, they put toys in their mouths, don’t keep band-aids on like they should, drink after one another, etc. While I am against vaccines too, the closeness that children have when they play together is a consideration. The responsibility and guilt I have if another child got Hep B through contact with my child weighs heavy. I also have to think about my child’s future marriage partner, to which I don’t have any answers yet.

    And in case you’re wondering about children with Hep B, let me share it is not uncommon among children from other countries, especially those adopted. Many of these children may have gotten Hep B from their mothers and are unable to do anything to prevent it. Those of us who have chosen to adopt these children live with risks like I have just described. Not only is there a risk among other children, but in the family as well, where close contact is a daily happening. I know receiving the Hep B vaccine is not a guarantee that you won’t get Hep B, but please be aware there are risks with not receiving it as well. This disease is really different than say chicken pox or measles, where a child will usually recover and have antibodies for the next exposure. This disease is life long and does not go away. There is more to consider than just saying no to the vaccine.

    • Thank you for sharing this! All 5 of my previous children have been fully vaccinated and I was considering not getting the Hep B for my next one. I am grateful to be able to see clearly from both sides of the argument before making a final decision.

      Reply
    • I respect what you are sharing here…the problem is that the vaccine, as with all vaccines, has so many long-term negative health impacts (as well as potential acute, even life-threatening, risks) that the harm outweighs any potential benefit. On top of that, it does not guarantee immunity…the efficacy of these vaccines is not what people have been led to believe. There must be better ways to ensure our children’s health and to protect their growing systems than poisoning them.

    • “When you have a Hep B child playing with other children who have not been vaccinated, there is a risk to those children.”

      This is the standard argument for FORCED “vaccination”.

      Modern Immunology theory does not support this myth.

      Each child and adult is exposed to many thousands of pathogens each and every day of their lives. Each child and adult must have an immune system that destroys ALL pathogens each and every time they are exposed. Getting “vaccinated” does NOT prevent exposure to any pathogen. Getting “vaccinated” in theory is purported to destroy the single pathogen one is “vaccinated” against. But this takes time, during this time a “vaccinated” child that is exposed will often broadcast the pathogen to all in range. We ALL sink or swim on our OWN immune system.

      In fact getting “vaccinated” for a SINGLE pathogen greatly weakens the immune system to MILLIONS of pathogens.

      “Vaccination” is NOT immunity. To conflate the terms “vaccination” and “immunity” is medical dishonesty. Why does much of the Medical Industry repeat this fallacy each and every day? If MOST of the good honest doctors do not start speaking the truth about the difference about “vaccination” and immunity IMO this country is doomed.

      • Lou,

        While I think your reply is sortof correct, you missed the mark in one BIG way.

        Sherri said there is a RISK to others. That is absolutely, totally, unarguably correct!
        That is no myth. There is a risk, and when people cannot face this, there are significant lapses in their thought processes. With that said, the risk that IS there, does not mean your child with contract Hep B. Just as every time I get in a car, there is a risk of being involved in a collision, or that sun exposure puts me at risk of skin cancer, it does not mean that it will happen. It means that it is possible.

        While I have yet to make the decision on whether my son or daughter will be vaccinated, I am fully in support of educated decisions and having all of the information available to parents for them to be able to do so. That means presenting the benefits and risks of both vaccinating and choosing not to vaccinate. I firmly believe it should be the parent’s choice, but I am also not ignorant to the fact that my choices will impact my growing child’s life in a multitude of ways, vaccinated or vaccine-free.

  40. Thank you so much, Sarah, for answering so fast :-)

    My baby was born by c-section (totally different from my expectations) and I had many problems with breastfeeding at first. It took some days before I felt I was producing colostrum and milk for her and it was such a painful experience, with blood and bits of flesh coming out of my breasts every time I fed her. I did not give up. Only now can I say that it is going well (no 100% pain for me like before)! However, my baby is so used to the bottles that when she is really hungry she refuses my breast (even though I see my milk going out og my nipple) maybe because she does not have to make a big effort to suck… she turns her face away and starts crying. I feel really frustrated and try to force her gently to go on sucking but then she refuses again and cries and it does not matter how many times I try to do that… she will go on crying louder and I will feel more and more frustrated. Once I breastfed her for 2 hours and 30 minutes later she was already crying out of hunger. I do not want to think that I have “weak” milk (my midwife told me that I would probably have no milk for my baby and the first thing she did was to give my baby a bottle right after she was born as I did not have milk for her) but I do not know what to do more. I wish I could only breastfeed her.

    The only supplements I am giving her now are a probiotic and vitamin D3 every day (a pediatrician recommended that vitamin – named “Vigantol” – , so we bought it in a pharmacy. Do you know this medicine? It is not from a natural source, of course… I am kind of “waking up” for this too, thank you again Sarah for what you are doing!).

    I only ate real butter once and I can say that it was the most wonderful thing my mouth ever tasted! It was the only time I could experience this. It is really impossible to find it here where I live (Norway). It took me more than 2 years to find a farmer willing to sell me raw milk! It is forbidden (by law) to sell and buy raw milk here… is there any way that those butter oil capsules you give your children as a supplement can substitute the real butter? It is also impossible to find grass fed beef here (and liver also)…I will go on trying to find them for my baby. If I cannot find it what can I give her as a substitute? Or as a supplement?

    The only cod liver oil I bought (recommended by an alternative doctor, saying that it was the only brand that would not damage the liver) is Nordic Naturals (http://www.nordicnaturals.com/). Again, I do not know if this doctor gave me the right info (I doubt all doctors now!). I have a bottle with me (yes, I have no idea how many months that bottle was in the shelf before I bought it… another eye-opener from another article of yours).
    What should be the dosage of cod liver oil for me per day?
    What is high vitamin cod liver oil? I have seen dozens of cod liver oils for sale but I have never seen this before (sorry for the dumb question).

    Last but not least: how many supplements should a baby/child get per day? Fermented Cod Liver Oil is one of them, butter oil capsules another… am I right?

    Thank you for your time Sarah.

  42. Hi Sarah

    I really have to thank you for everything I have already learnt in your blog. You are helping many people to take their blinds away with the articles you write!

    I have a question…
    I have a 3 month-old baby who received 2 shots (BCG and Hep B) against my will. I was also threatened by the doctor who assisted me in my labour (because I was completely against vaccination). It was a nightmare for me.
    Fortunately, I managed to convince my husband about the dangers of vaccines so he totally supports me now by saying that our baby will not receive any more shots (and I have to say that he was really convinced that vaccines were the next best thing for health). I feel really guilty for not having been stronger in order to protect my baby as I should against those 2 shots… I have to learn how to forgive myself as I still hear her crying for me when she was being injected. It’s torture for me.
    Now I ask: is there any way of removing those poisons completely away from my baby’s body? An homepath told us to give our baby THUYA after the vaccination which we did but… there is something telling me that it doesn’t work…

      Maria, good nutrition goes a very long way toward protecting your child from any onslaught from toxic vaccines and other environmental poisons you may come in contact with. For example, vitamin A is very very protective from dioxin which is a poison which is now everywhere in the environment even the North Pole. Concentrate on providing your child with plenty of the sacred foods and you will be doing the best you can do in a very imperfect world. Raw grassfed butter, fish eggs, egg yolks from pastured hens, organ meats especially grassfed liver, bone marrow, fermented cod liver oil, high vitamin butter oil plus plenty of bone broths to keep the gut in great shape.

    • Maria, I am so sorry to hear of the abuse perpetrated against your child! You can detoxify your child to help mitigate the negative effects of the vaccine long-term. There are some gentle herbal and nutritional ways to do so. You especially want to do a diet/herbal protocol that is cleansing and strengthening to the liver. It is the liver that needs to be repaired first after a drug assault agains the body. Some good herbs/nutrients/foods for this purpose include beets (beet juice is very cleansing to the liver…make it raw and add carrot and apple and a small bit of greens, like kale), turmeric, chlorella…there are many options that are safe even for young children. Homeopathy is a wonderfully healing modality and I would suggest that you not give up on it. You may find that another remedy is better suited to helping detoxify and reverse the effects of the vaccines, and you can find information on that online.

      Sarah’s advice about diet is spot on…over time, your child’s body will heal and strengthen. Be sure to be feeding in such a way as to heal and seal the gut, which houses the majority of our immune systems, and which is easily damaged by vaccines and drugs and processed foods. A diet rich in healthy, clean food sources of saturated fats is crucial to gut and immune health. I wish you well!

    • My son was given Hep B vaccine right after birth and immediately began having severe seizures. We could not figure out what it was, they ran tons of tests but never came to a conclusion. As he got older he had severe allergies and eczema, metabolic issues, night terrors, never slept, then he began to develop uncontrollable motor tics, His pediatrician said the only thing they could do to control them would be Haldol, although a very strong drug with bad side effects, such as suicide, weight gain, depression, aggression. I told this particular doctor where he could go. So this is when I took the bull by the horns. God rid of our Pediatrician and went through 3 more. I started researching and found he did in fact have vaccine poisoning. I was able to stop the tics by detoxing, and boosting his immune system though supplements, we stopped vaccinating. Slowly his health improved. His allergies are not as bad as they once were, tics are gone, lost a great deal of weight, metabolism has improved, very little eczema. My advice is do not stop detoxing, and boosting immune system. It is paramount in getting these children back to good health. Stop vaccinating!!!!!! My grandmother contracted Guilons Baret from a flu shot and died shortly after. My family thought I was crazy but several years later two of my cousins called me because their children were showing the same health issues as my son. They also stopped vaccinating and began detoxing and boosting the immune system with good results. My opinion is that the vaccination scare is a method of thinning the heard. If you damage a childs liver, you damage his/her ability to filter toxins. Toxins are a major cause of Cancer.

    • Thank you for asking this, Maria (and for the reply, Sarah). The same question weighs on my mind. I’ve been on the fence about many vaccines for a while now: refusing the flu shot, wishing I’d refused the chickenpox (but felt trapped by state law: kids are required to have it to attend school). Didn’t know the Hep B shot was so damaging and thought since my husband was routinely exposed to blood-borne pathogens in his line of work, it might be reasonable to “protect” the kids from accidental exposure to the disease.
      That being said, while I feel inundated with information on the evils of vaccines (and grappling with my own background in bio-anth), I’ve felt like there’s a lack of information available on what to do if you’re learning this after the fact. I’ve had three babies given the Hep B shot. My eldest has mild autism spectrum (SAD diet while pregnant with him); my older daughter had allergies (and is a terribly picky eater – whole foods diet while pregnant with her) but is otherwise healthy; my youngest is healthiest of all (organic/grass-fed/free-range, mostly traditionaly-prepared whole foods with her). I can see the shift, but I’m desperate to do all I can for my son especially (now 6). No easy task, but working on it.

  43. All vaccines contain toxic additives along with the immune damage done by the viruses themselves so it makes sense to avoid Hep B vaccine especially. Of course, “modern” medicine doesn’t want to shift its paradigm to less toxic therapies.

  44. I am still up in the air about vaccination for my babies in general and doing my research. But Hep B was on my “absolutely decline” list from the beginning. What justification can there be for vaccinating a newborn against a disease acquired primarily through sexual contact or sharing needles, if the mother is Heb B negative? Absurd.

    Reply
  45. After reading your initial post on this topic, I freaked out b/c I’m 15 weeks pregnant and started to research my area. And not ALL newborns are injected with the Hep B vaccine! Thank God!! You have to research your state, but in many states you can decline it. Its good to make sure that your hospital and OB or midwife are very clear on your wishes and support you in that. Its also good to write out a clear birth plan stating you refuse it and give copies to all parties involved in the birth of your baby.

    I asked my midwife almost immediately after I read your post and at least in NJ they have a special birth plan form you can download if you specifically do not want the vaccine. My midwife said my hospital is really respectful about this and works with the couple. Some great news in the traditional food world for a change!!!!

    • I would still assign someone (not you – husband, mom, or friend) to be with the baby at all times. When something is the norm, the nurses frequently just do it without checking – it happens WAY more than you can imagine.

    • Do not expect everybody know your wishes. Some nurses do not read birth plans. I had two kids and both times I had to kick the nurse out when she stormed in and walk us up screaming like crazy: “We need to vaccinate you and your baby now!” I could not believe it. We were up all night with crying baby and just got quite time to be awaken like this. I asked: ” Did you READ my birth plan?” I was very angry. She did not read it and did not see my religious exemption. They also said that they are very good supporting our wishes, but they only say that. What I realized that everybody is so good on the side where you give birth, but it is different on the other side for after birth and they don’t care there. Make sure your baby’s father or whoever staying with you in the hospital stay with baby when they take him/her out your room for tests and checkups all the time. DO NOT TRUST ANYONE. I am from NJ and I know. I had fist baby at very good hospital and the second at one of the best hospital and in the end both gave me some horrible experience, but second was bit better. I have friends who were lied to and they did what ever to baby they thought was best no matter what birth plan said. (like: mother said exclusive breast feeding and nurses took baby to nursery so mother get some rest and gave him sugar water and formula. Then breast feeding nightmare problems followed.) Everybody had these things happening in recovery/nursery part of the hospital. I would suggest to go to hospital and talk to nursery nurses and when you are there in labor, make sure your birth plan placed everywhere and tape it to the door. Type post for the door: “Do not disturb when we asleep, NO VACCINES. Walk in quietly, SPEAK SOFTLY!!!” We had doctors running in and yell: “Are you Jane Born?” It annoyed me to death. Also, do not be surprised to see disrespect from those nurses. They are advocates for your baby and in their mind you are a bad uneducated mother going with a newest trend. They truly believe that vaccines save lives and do not cause any reactions. You will see good nurses as well. It’s just a start and you’ll have to learn to be a fighter. Good luck!

It is important for others to learn about the toxic effects and truly criminal act of giving a baby born 1 day this deadly drug. It is upsetting that parents are told everything is safe, when indeed it IS NOT. My first son received the HEP B and had an adverse reaction in the hospital. It took me years to forgive myself. I don’t want anyone else’s child to suffer in that way. Thanks again for the research Sarah! Keep it coming.

          I should add that jaundice is no big deal. A newborn’s liver doesn’t start working for a few days and as soon as it does, the jaundice begins to go away almost immediately. Docs like you to think that jaundice is this big hairy deal when it is not. Jaundice becomes a problem day 4 or longer after birth. This is info straight from my favorite MD in the world – my Dad.

          • I agree, jaundice is not a big deal. My first baby, born in 1975, was jaundiced and we were told *by my family, not my OB* to sit in the sunshine with her a few times each day. Worked like a charm. The hospital wanted to keep her for 14 days under a bili light and the whole nine yards. I said no and that was it. We were over 100 miles from home because we lived on a farm not near a hospital and my daughter was born breech (almost transverse), face up. Otherwise, she would have been born at a small community hospital only 65 miles away (which I prefer to the big conglomerate hospitals now) as were my 2 sons in later years. The only “drug” I ever had, even with my first one, was oxygen, except when they stitched me after she was born they injected lidocaine because I had sooooo many stitches. Doc tried to turn her but it didn’t happen, so she was born butt first, face up.

          • Sarah, TheHealthyHomeEconomist

            Yes, I took my first child to the pediatrician 2 days after birth for a checkup (all my children were born with no OB present at a birthcenter) and was told that he needed the lights/blindfold the whole thing because he was jaundiced. I told them where they could put their lights and left. He was fine starting the next day once his liver kicked in. These folks look for every way possible to make a nickle even when the treatment is totally unnecessary.

            Actually, breastfeeding and delayed cord clamping (letting all the cord blood go into the infant) both increase the chance of jaundice, not decrease it from the research I’ve done. This is why I figured my children all had a bit of jaundice as we cut the cord only after it had completely stopped pulsing. There are different schools of thought on that though … some more recent studies indicate no difference in jaundice risk no matter when the cord is cut (although the benefits of late clamping are huge for the baby).
            Sarah, TheHealthyHomeEconomist\’s last post: 5 Reasons Why Your Stock Won’t Gel

          • I’m very curious about the long term effects of jaundice. I was born jaundice, and I have a very weak liver as an adult. I used to think I was allergic to alcohol, it would make me so sick when I drank. I’ve been seeing an amazing acupuncturist for a while now and she told me that my jaundice was an early indicator of a sluggish liver. I’m far more sensitive to chemicals and intoxicants than someone with a full power liver. I’ve been living SO clean for over 2 years now (as in, no chemicals in my home or my body) and my liver is still not running great. I feel like it’s so dangerous to weaken the liver in infancy when we’re up against such a world of chemicals today. We need strong livers now more than ever. I’m sure that jaundice itself isn’t a big deal, but if it really is an indication of a flawed liver as my acupuncturist believes, it’s the tip of a pretty big iceberg. Oh, and I WAS vaccinated for Hep B and every other thing they told my mom I needed.

    • I’m not sure when the VitK shot became standard but it can also cause jaundice. So can high altitude! My only child to not have jaundice is the only one who did not have HepB or VitK.

      Reply
      • Of my three children, the one who received the vitamins K shot was the one who had jaundice the worst. He also had a pretty traumatic birth and an extremely bruised head (which, I believe, warranted the shot). I’m sure his bruising contributed to his jaundice, but I also believe that the vitamin K shot prevented him from clearing the jaundice as quickly as he should have. He was on lights for almost a week before his numbers began to drop. The next two kiddos didn’t get the shot (despite pressure from docs) and one of them “needed” lights in the hospital (he test Coombs positive, however) and the last had a very mild case of jaundice. Anyhow, I do see somewhat if a correlation with vitamin K and severity of jaundice based on our experiences.

    • All three of my kids had varying degrees of jaundice at birth, as did I myself. Of my kids, only two had the Hep B vaccine in hospital as newborns (the oldest was born before they started vaccinating babies, and was put on the schedule to have his vaccination at high school instead).

      That being said, I wish I had refused the vaccine!! At the time I was still on the pro-vaccine side unfortunately (my education had taught me all the benefits of vaccines and why they were necessary, and I really hadn’t heard nearly so much about the adverse effects). I was freaked out at the idea of vaccinating newborns, as all the other baby vaccines started at 2 months (which was bad enough) but I did it.

      I am glad I have learned about the dangers of vaccines before subjecting my kids to the HPV vaccine though!! They’re talking about introducing it for both boys and girls here in Australia (and are even implying that Australia is “backward” for not ALREADY giving it to boys…). Makes me sick.

      • And to add, I have never been vaccinated against Hep B, so it never made sense that my kids “had” to be. In fact, I haven’t been injected with a vaccine since 1985 ;). I only wish I’d fought more for my kids. Schools etc. make it so bloody difficult if you DON’T vaccinate. I just hope they don’t have a big fit when I refuse to get my daughter (and maybe my youngest son if the rules change before next year) vaccinated against HPV!!

    • We opted out of the vaccine for our first two children and will do so for the third. They both ended up with jaundice and had to do the biliblanket phototherapy. I’m glad that we chose to avoid the vaccine given this info. Looks like we’ll still be holding out on it for a while…

    • Jaundice in newborns is caused by prematurity, too many analgesics and anesthesia given to the mother and the vitamin K shot.

    • Hi Terrie. Our baby girl had jaundice when she was born. She was born at home…no drugs and vaccines. Still wish I knew why she had jaundice ?
