I'm sick with a non-vaccine targeted illness, so I'm bored an want another fun thread. winky.gif

I often hear people who criticize or raise questions about the current vaccine schedule labeled "anti-vax." I also hear the non-substantiated claim that 99.9% of experts back the U.S. schedule.

So, name your "anti-vax" experts, preferably from the good'ol mainstream, and how each one questions one or more vaccine recommendations. Keep the numbers flowing in order, please. I'll start.

1. My own family doctor, whom I'll call Dr. Smith, is critical of newborn Hep B does and mass chicken pox vaccination.
2. Dr. Bob Sears, who has called aluminum in vaccines into question and proposed schedules and brands to minimize exposure.
3. Dr. Tom Jefferson, a Cochrane Collaboration epidemiologist whose research finds no support for routine infleunza vaccination in most populations.

Have at it, ladies! thumb.gif

9. Dr. Yazbak, of Falmouth, Massachusetts, a pediatrician with special training in infectious diseases, was formerly the Assistant Clinical Director of the Charles V. Chapin Hospital, and the Chief of Pediatrics at Woonsocket Hospital in Rhode Island.  He was also Assistant Member of the Institute of Health Sciences and  Pediatric Director of the Child Development Study at Brown University"

 

"Dr Yazbak practised pediatrics and was a school physician for 34 years in Northern Rhode Island. Since 1998, he has devoted his time to researching the prevalence and causes of auto-immune regressive autism, vaccine injury, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS). He has served as an expert witness in vaccine injury, autism, and SBS cases, and has written extensively on those subjects."

10. The developmental paediatrician who assessed my son.  He was in the December of his career (he retired 2 years later) so he had seen a lot of disease.  When we asked him if we should continue to vaccinate my son (because no matter what reactions or experience we had, I couldn't wrap my head around that something in mainstream medicine could be so dangerous for him) he shook his head no.

11. Dr. Robert S. Mendelsohn, MD, practicing pediatrician and dues paying member of the AMA for 40 years; gives a whole new meaning to "paying dues". He was an author of at least three best-selling books, syndicated columnist, professor of medical ethics, and was an expert witness in many malpractice cases and other cases. Dr. Mendelsohn participated in the Dieckmann Study at the University of Chicago, a double-blind, scientific study to study the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of DES, diethylstilbestrol, (the Wonder Drug that you should wonder about) during pregnancy to prevent miscarriage. He was medical advisor to LLLI and Project Head Start. He advocated for midwives and for home birth. He was the first pediatrician in the United States to advocate against routine childhood vaccinations; when he did that, during the 1976 Swine Flu fiasco, within a week, he lost 50% of the circulation of his syndicated column, " A Very Second Opinion".

 

Dr. Mendelsohn said that he followed what his mentors told him to do during the first years of his practice as a pediatrician. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the damage returned to him.  Cancer of the thyroid from radium boxes on the thymus gland, DES daughters, asthma and allergies from vaccinations were common collateral damage; he asked them why they returned to him when he was the one who caused the damage. This lead him to the belief that obviously the relationship of a patient and a doctor is a sacred relationship, almost religious. That is why he titled his first book, Confessions Of A Medical Heretic.

 

One of the greatest pleasures of my life were to go to see and hear Dr. Robert S. Mendelsohn at NHF conventions. As a religious Jew, he never lectured on Saturday, but those Friday and Sunday lectures were the highlights of my life.  Once, my oldest son began to fuss during one of his lectures, and I stood up to leave; Dr. Mendelsohn, stopped his lecture and said that he loved it when babies talked back to him and I should not leave.  I laughed and said that I would go out in the hall so that others could hear him but promised not to give my son a bottle. Everyone laughed and applauded.  I bought and still have the tape from that lecture. My son is 31 now, and that is a treasured memory.

18. Dr Herbert Ratner, MD

19. Dr Michele Carbone

20. Dr. Bernice Eddy

21. Dr. Maurice Hilleman -

22. Dr. Ben Sweet

All worked to prove that the SV40 virus was in the polio vaccine.

23. Dr. Richard Moskowitz, MD and homeopath.

26. Dr. Kartzinel, Jennifer McCarthy's doctor who wrote the foreward to her book and appeared with her on talkshows.

27. Dr. Mayim Bialik, PhD neurology

 

*from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_Ratner

Quote:
 In 1960 Ratner learned that a government researcher Dr. Bernice Eddy had discovered evidence of a cancer-causing agent that she described as a vacuolating virus in the Salk vaccine rhesus-monkey-kidney culture medium. Dr. Ben Sweet working under Dr. Maurice Hilleman at Merck observed a similar agent in the same kind of medium that they were using to develop a vaccine for adenovirus. The agent was later identified as a monkey virus and named Simian Virus 40 (SV40). Sweet & Hilleman published their work in November 1960 and Eddy published her work in May 1961. The unused box of 1955 Salk polio vaccine Ratner had placed in his refrigerator remained there for more than forty years. In the meantime researchers had begun to discover that SV40 was associated with various cancers. One of these researchers was Dr. Michele Carbone, a molecular pathologist of Italian birth and education, then working at the University of Chicago.

Sweet BH, Hilleman MR. “The vacuolating virus, SV40.” Proc Soc Exp Biol Med 105: 420-27, Nov. 1960.

 

I do not want to insult you, but wiki has an article about him too. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Hilleman I suppose the reason he is on my list is because at least he was part of the group that admitted and confirmed, however late, that the early polio vaccines contained SV40.  I went to a funeral last November for a friend who suffered for the last 13 years with a brain tumor. It was awful.

 

Get well, Turquesa!

So please tell me, how does one find a pediatrician of sorts that will work with you and your infant regarding no vax or selective vax?
Living in northern Cali right now I'm traveling into Oregon for homeopathic advise but would love an MD who works with you in all aspects of alternatives. Any leads?

A few ideas:  (and if you need more ideas, I suggest you start a thread  :)).

 

There are multiple lists cited here:

http://community.babycenter.com/post/a30859003/new_list_of_vaccine_friendly_doctors_state_by_state

 

Post in the tribe section on MDC and ask

 

Ask someone who is alt friendly in your area - a friend, someone from La lache league, the health-food store, homeschoolers, a chiropractor, a midwife if you were lucky enough to have one/know one in the area.  This is how I have gotten two doctors - and while both were/are pro-vax, they both acknowledged parents as decison makers and neither have given me a  hard time
