Great ideas do not burst upon the world unannounced; they are reached by a gradual development over a length of time usually proportionate to their importance.
- Calvin Coolidge

”In no case should a collective community agreement or the consent of a community leader or other authority substitute for an individual’s informed consent.”
- Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights

For every human illness, somewhere in the world there exists a plant which is the cure. There is a healing potential locked inside plants which is integral with their evolution, just as it is part of human evolution to learn to tap this wonderful Gift of Nature.

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
~ Thomas Alva Edison, who died from complications of diabetes in 1931.

He who dares not offend cannot be honest.
~ Thomas Paine

All generous minds have a horror of what are commonly called “facts.” They are the brute beasts of the intellectual domain.
I firmly believe that if the whole materia medica, as now used, could be sunk to the bottom of the sea, it would be better for mankind - and all the worse for the fishes.
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr, MD, a doctor himself said in May 1860 at a meeting of the Massachusetts Medical Society.

The complete quote is -

Throw out opium, which the Creator himself seems to prescribe, for we often see the scarlet poppy growing in the cornfields, as if it were foreseen that wherever there is hunger to be fed there must also be a pain to be soothed; throw out a few specifics which our art did not discover, and it is hardly needed to apply; throw out wine, which is a food, and the vapors which produce the miracle of anaesthesia, and I firmly believe that if the whole materia medica [medical drugs], as now used, could be sunk to the bottom of the sea, it would be all the better for mankind,—and all the worse for the fishes.

“At present, intelligent people do not have their children vaccinated, nor does the law now compel them to. The result is not, as the Jennerians prophesied, the extermination of the human race by smallpox; on the contrary, more people are now killed by vaccination than by smallpox.”

“Nothing but the natural ignorance of the public, countenanced by the inoculated erroneousness of the ordinary general medical practitioners, makes such a barbarism as vaccination possible.......Recent developments have shown that an inoculation made in the usual general practitioner's light-hearted way, without previous highly skilled examination of the state of the patient's blood, is just as likely to be a simple manslaughter as a cure or preventive. But vaccination is nothing short of attempted murder. A skilled bacteriologist would just as soon think of cutting his child's arm and rubbing the contents of the dustpan into the wound, as vaccinating it in the same.”
- George Bernard Shaw
"Those who believe the government has YOUR best interests at heart never paid attention in history class."

The Hepatitis B vaccine is now given to newborns. We sometimes give five and six vaccines all at one time.

I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines.
- Sen Rand Paul, surgeon and doctor of ophthamology
How is it that mercury is not safe for food additives and Over the Counter drug products, but it is safe in our vaccines and dental amalgams?
- Cong Dan Burton, Indiana - (er, Congressman Burton, thimerasol used to be in contact lens solutions up to 1990)
I think there's no question that vaccines have been absolutely critical in ridding us of the scourge of many diseases - smallpox, polio, etc. So vaccines are an invaluable medication. Like any medication, they also should be - what shall we say? - approved by a regulatory board that people can trust.
- Dr Jill Stein, MD
I'm very pro vaccine. I get all six of my kids vaccinated. I believe vaccines save millions of lives, and people ought to be getting vaccinated.
- RFK, Jr
"Delay of DPT immunization until 2 years of age in Japan has resulted in a dramatic decline in adverse side effects. In the period of 1970-1974, when DPT vaccination was begun at 3 to 5 months of age, the Japanese national compensation system paid out claims for 57 permanent severe damage vaccine cases, and 37 deaths. During the ensuing six year period 1975-1980, when DPT injections were delayed to 24 months of age, severe reactions from the vaccine were reduced to a total of eight with three deaths. This represents an 85 to 90 percent reduction in severe cases of damage and death."
--Raymond Obomsawin, Ph.D.
"Autism may be a disorder linked to the disruption of the G-alpha protein, affecting retinoid receptors in the brain. A study of sixty autistic children suggests that autism may be caused by inserting a G-alpha protein defect, the pertussis toxin found in the D.P.T. vaccine, into genetically at-risk children."
--Mary N. Megson, M.D.
"There is insufficient evidence to support routine vaccination of healthy persons of any age."
-- Dr Paul Frame, M.D., Journal of Family Practice
"These data show that DPT vaccination may be a generally unrecognized major cause of sudden infant and early childhood death, and that the risks of immunization may outweigh its potential benefits. A need for re-evaluation and possible modification of current vaccination procedures is indicated by this study."
- William C. Torch, M.D., Director of Child Neurology, Department of Pediatrics, University of Nevada School of Medicine
"Vaccination is not necessary, not useful, does not protect. There are twice as many casualties from vaccination as from AIDS."
--Dr. Gerhard Buchwald, West Germany, specialist of internal diseases and participant in about 150 trials of vaccination victims.
"Sudden Infant Death Syndrome has been reported following administration of DPT. The significance is unclear. 85% of SIDS cases occur in the period 1 through 6 months of age, with the peak incidence at age 2 to 4 months."

Here is my token post for those of you who support vaccinations and think I am an old antivax wingnut. You know who you are.

1720s - Benjamin Franklin published an editorial in his newspaper against the practice of variolation. Not too long after that, his son died of smallpox complications, in 1736.
“In 1736 I lost one of my sons, a fine boy of four years old, by the small-pox, taken in the common way. I long regretted bitterly, and still regret that I had not given it to him by inoculation. This I mention for the sake of parents who omit that operation, on the supposition that they should never forgive themselves if a child died under it; my example showing that the regret may be the same either way, and that, therefore, the safer should be chosen.”
“Vaccines are the tugboats of preventive health.”
William Foege, epidemiologist.

"We need to build and sustain vaccine confidence among those who are still vaccinating, but are starting to question, hesitate and perhaps refuse some vaccines."
~ Heidi Larson. London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, European Medicines Agency, Science, Medicines, Health

“Vaccines save lives; fear endangers them. It's a simple message parents need to keep hearing.”
- Jeffrey Kluger, author of Splendid Solution ...

“Everybody who's a physician, who makes vaccines, who wants to find the cure for cancer. Everybody who wants to do any medical good for humankind got the passion for that before he or she was 10.”
- Bill Nye, the science guy

“Humans have always used our intelligence and creativity to improve our existence. After all, we invented the wheel, discovered how to make fire, invented the printing press and found a vaccine for polio.”
- Naveen Jain

“I don't think there is any philosophy that suggests having polio is a good thing.”
- Bill Gates

“I'm old enough to remember when the polio vaccine was still new. Also, it hadn't been that long since most people who caught pneumonia died from it. These medical breakthroughs were practically miracles.”
Pat Cadigan

“Imagine the action of a vaccine not just in terms of how it affects a single body, but also in terms of how it affects the collective body of a community.”

We've been using vaccination in some form for hundreds of years now. We have almost nothing in our modern medicine that we've been using that long, and it's been consistently productive even though, you know, the older vaccines were much more dangerous than vaccines we're using now.
- Eula Biss

The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more.
- Jonas Salk

The return on investment in global health is tremendous, and the biggest bang for the buck comes from vaccines. Vaccines are among the mostsuccessful and cost-effective health investments in history.
- Seth Berkey

Vaccines and antibiotics have made many infectious diseases a thing of the past; we've come to expect that public health and modern science can conquer all microbes. But nature is a formidable adversary.
- Thomas Frieden

"Objective reality exists. Facts are often determinable. Carbon dioxide traps global heat. Vaccines save lives. Bacteria evolve to thwart antibiotics, because evolution. Science and reason are not a political conspiracy. They are how we discover reality. Civilization's survival depends on our ability, and our willingness, to do so."
- Alan MacRobert

Water is more dangerous than vaccines.
- State Sen/Dr Richard Pan

I believe that science should be accepted without question. I'm a doctor. I am a scientific expert. I decide what science is. You, on the other hand, are only a parent. If you don't respect my scientific and medical credentials, or you refuse to follow my advice, I think the state should take your children from you.
What’s the best way to convince a parent to get a vaccine is to have an outbreak; I mean, nothing educates like the virus.” He goes on to say, “Measles scared them, and so that’s it – fear sells. People are compelled much more by fear than reason.
~ Dr. Paul Offit, M.D.

If you do not vaccinate your children, you should have them taken away from you.
~ Dr. Paul Offit, M.D.

[The Police force can be used in forcing vaccination at gun point.] It would not be easy, but it can be done.
~ Law Professor, Dorit Reiss Rubinstein.

“And since no one any longer responds to things spontaneously-you take drugs to study, drugs to love, drugs to rise up in revolt, drugs to forget-the distinction between manipulated and natural feelings has ceased to exist.”

Gandhi said

YOU assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of its evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul.

"The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able [and willing] to think things out for himself, without regard to prevailing superstitions or taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the [correct] conclusion that the government he lives under is completely dishonest, insane, and intolerable."
