CDC’s bold vax expansion sparks controversy amidst safety concerns
(NaturalHealth365) Due to the overbearing agenda of the pharmaceutical industry, immunizations are a pervasive influence over the lives of our children. Parents are told that a quick shot in the arm prevents a significant amount of suffering later on. But, most of our NaturalHealth365 friends know that’s not entirely true.
Sadly, in recent years, the childhood injection schedule has expanded beyond addressing the diseases most commonly affecting children, such as measles, mumps, and rubella, to encompass illnesses such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), COVID-19, and even hepatitis. This year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has proposed further additions to the immunization schedule, leading to heightened apprehension.
The escalation in the number of shots administered at closely spaced intervals during childhood has raised significant concerns. Some childhood advocacy groups are now questioning the CDC’s motives and the safety measures involved in recommending these alterations to the vax schedule.
Why does the CDC keep pushing more shots on children, pregnant women, and adults?
The notable increase in recommended shots in recent decades is unmistakable. The updated schedule now includes fresh recommendations aimed at combating recently identified virus strains. Some critics may contend that the term “newly created” viruses might more accurately describe these emerging pathogens.
Critics are voicing concerns over this escalating number of jabs, with some labeling it “a risky medical experiment.” They argue that the CDC hasn’t subjected the entire childhood immunization schedule to thorough safety or efficacy testing.
Moreover, there’s growing criticism of the CDC’s prioritization of shots over broader public health concerns and its susceptibility to pharmaceutical influence.
A number of medical experts criticize the expanded shot schedule, deeming it unnecessary and harmful to children. For example, children aged 0-18 may now require up to 80 injections, representing a significant increase from the 1983 recommendation of just 11 shots.
Additionally, the CDC’s recommendation of shots for diseases such as monkeypox, human papillomavirus (HPV), and pneumococcal diseases further fuels health concerns. These recommendations also suggest initiating immunization earlier and receiving more boosters throughout childhood, from infancy to adolescence.
Another troubling aspect of the updated shot schedule is its increased frequency and dosages administered to pregnant and nursing women without adequate studies on potential effects.
The early release of the 2024 shot schedule, expedited to appease insurance companies, raises further eyebrows. This move prompts reflection on the alarming influence of insurance companies over CDC actions, underscoring the need for careful scrutiny of such relationships.
Follow the Big Pharma money trail
Recent revelations have also brought to light a concerning practice wherein both Pfizer and Moderna provide incentives to doctors based on the number of individuals fully vaxed with their respective COVID-19 shots at the doctor’s clinic. This arrangement has raised significant ethical questions surrounding the influence of financial incentives on medical decisions.
When a doctor’s decision to prescribe a medication is swayed by the potential for extra financial compensation from either the insurance or pharmaceutical company, it directly undermines the integrity of patient care. This financial motivation may lead to a skewed approach to prescribing treatments, potentially prioritizing financial gain over what is truly in the best interest of the patient. Consequently, patients may receive medications or shots that are not necessarily the most suitable or effective for their individual health needs.
This practice not only compromises patient care but also erodes trust in the medical profession. Patients rely on their healthcare providers to offer unbiased, evidence-based recommendations for their health and well-being. Thus, it is imperative to address and mitigate the influence of financial interests on medical decision-making to ensure the highest standards of patient care and ethical integrity within the healthcare system.
“Let food be thy medicine”
There is little doubt that people who eat a whole foods (organic) diet, don’t smoke or drink alcohol, get regular exercise, and get plenty of good quality sleep are simply healthier than those who do not. While your diet might not protect you from all diseases, you have a much better chance of fighting off the worst effects if you live a healthy lifestyle.
For example, we now know, medical evidence has proven that people who suffer with comorbidities like diabetes, poor liver function or obesity had far worse effects from COVID infections.
Regrettably, insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies have no financial incentive to endorse exercise, adequate sleep, and proper nutrition. Recognizing the significant influence of money in driving many aspects of this industry can empower you to make well-informed decisions for yourself and your family.
