Epidemic of Chronic Illness in Children
The plight of Canadian families who have been caring for their severely autistic children recently spilled out into the media. Reports in the Toronto Star, CTV News and Ottawa Citizen profiled desperate families who feel they have no choice but to abandon their developmentally disabled adult children.  Services for adults with developmental disabilities are stretched to the limit and so are the aging parents looking after them. Some risk being sent to homeless shelters or jail.

In Ontario alone, there are about 12,000 families waiting for some kind of supported living accommodation for their developmentally disabled adult children, many of whom are in their late teens and early twenties.  This is the crop of children who were at the receiving end of the doubling of the vaccine schedule in the mid to late 80’s and early 90’s.

Ontario’s Ombudsman, André Marin, has begun an investigation into services for adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.  "'We have heard heart-wrenching stories from aging or ill parents whose adult sons and daughters are a danger to themselves and others and need constant care that can't be provided at home - but they have nowhere to turn,' Marin said when he began the investigation last fall. His office is dealing with so many complaints about the issue that the investigation might take longer than the planned six months.

Offspring are being left in (hospital) emergency rooms, in government offices,” says Miriam Fry, with an organization called Families Matter, a parent support group for families with children with developmental disabilities.  “There have been cases of murder suicide. It is definitely a crisis” reported CTV News.

“I am going through the same thing”
, said one exhausted mother commenting on the CTV News article. "I have a severely autistic son, 12 yrs old, violent, non verbal and no respite. I have begged and begged for help but have been told, we have nothing for you. He was abused at a group home he was in - it's like out of sight out of mind for the government. We have another child with PDD-NOS and she has to hide when her brother gets violent, but still no help from anyone. I said to his social worker that if something bad happens all of you will say "oh, we should have helped that family". Why not help BEFORE something bad happens! Things need to change. I live in BC so I guess it's a national problem.”

The public is responding sympathetically, but few are asking WHY??  What has caused this unprecedented surge of developmentally disabled children and young adults in the last 25 years?  This is the generation of children who have been hit hard by immune system damage and brain injuries triggered by the huge increase in the infant vaccine schedule since the mid 1980’s. How many of these thousands of families started off with normally developing healthy babies, only to see them regress into chronic illnesses and neurodevelopmental disorders by age three or four after getting the full load of government recommended vaccines?  Immunologist Judy van de Water discusses the critical role of the immune system in how the brain functions and develops.
“It is not reasonable to assume that manipulation of the immune system through an increasing number of vaccinations during critical periods of brain development will not result in adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes”, say the authors of a new scientific review from Poland who discuss the irreparable harm done by vaccines.
The PENTA Project
In 1994, five pediatric vaccines were delivered through a single needle for the first time in history. The first delivered to a heavily competitive market was PENTA (DPT-Polio-Hib PRP-T).  Canadian children were the test market for this experimental 5 in 1 vaccine that was used only in Canada. Parents were not informed that their children were test subjects for this new, unlicensed vaccine. “Following mass administration of PENTA reports of adverse reactions began to pour into Health Canada.  Through the Canadian Freedom of Information Act we received this partial list of reports from Health Canada. Among convulsions, infections, brain inflammation, anaphylaxis and screaming the "Outcome" for at least two children was "Fatal".”

If you believe your child may have received the PENTA combination vaccine, and suffered health injuries, please contact the Penta Project for more information and to tell your story.

Pentavalent vaccine: Doing more harm than good?
By Dr.Jacob Puliyel MD - "Information obtained under the right to information suggests that in the first six months, when the vaccine was administered to 40,000 children in Kerala, five children died. If this is extrapolated and the 25 million babies in India born each year are vaccinated we can expect 3125 deaths…. These deaths from the vaccine would seem to outweigh any benefit that immunisation can yield.”  ... Read more here

CDC Claim of No Autism-Vaccine Link Based on Junk Science
By Heidi Stevenson –“The CDC has produced junk science that demonstrates absolutely nothing, but claims it shows no connection between autism and the vaccine schedule.  It’s now spinning it as if it proves that here’s no link between the modern day nightmare of autism and the vaccinesthey push for Big Pharma. Here’s the evidence” ... Read more here
Infants Born To Vaccinated Mothers May Lose Initial Measles Immunity Sooner Than Those Born To Unvaccinated Mothers
A new Dutch study suggests that infants born to mothers who received the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine lose their initial immunity to measles--acquired from their mothers--sooner than infants born to mothers who were naturally infected with mealses. ... Read more here
Canadian teen suffers HPV vaccine injury
“We had no informed consent before Gardasil changed our lives – It was only after I reported adverse reactions that the local health unit directed me to the manufacturer’s website and Merck’s product monograph. I was appalled at the very long list of side effects worded much differently than the information I had been given. It included phrases like a ‘weakened immune system’ as one of the risks. At the bottom of the list it stated “this is not a complete list of side effects.” ... Read more here

New York Times analysis: “I [Dr. Ned Hallowell] think now’s the time to call attention to the dangers that can be associated with making the diagnosis in a slipshod fashion,” he said. “That we have kids out there getting these drugs to use them as mental steroids — that’s dangerous, and I hate to think I have a hand in creating that problem.” ...

Drug companies Drive the Psychiatric Drugging of children
By Dr. Peter Breggin – “With increasing millions of children being placed on drugs that can harm normal development of the child’s brain and mind, and substitute for proper teaching and parenting, it’s time to change emphasis. As a society, we need to resist the quick fix that does more harm than good, and to stand up against the massive drugging of children.” ... Read more here
Are Canadian Kids undervaccinated?
Or is it that we just don’t know?  “Without registries, provinces and territories cannot say for sure how many of their children are vaccinated and how many are not. Nor can they say if the vaccinated kids got their shots at the right time, or if some followed alternate schedules that appear to be growing in popularity among some vaccine-hesitant parents. Alternate schedules are not advised by the experts who recommend immunization policies.” ... Read more here
VRAN calls for a national accounting
of the number of Canadian children afflicted with chronic neurodevelopmental and immune disorders today.  The numbers are growing. A recent U.S. survey found that 43% of children have at least 1 of 20 chronic health conditions, increasing to 54.1% when obesity is included.  No doubt the stats are very similar in Canada where the vaccination rate is almost as bloated and aggressive as in the U.S. ...

Scientist Slams Flu Vaccine
A Johns Hopkins scientist has issued a blistering report on influenza vaccines in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Peter Doshi, Ph.D., charges that although the vaccines are being pushed on the public in unprecedented numbers, they are less effective and cause more side effects than alleged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Further, says Doshi, the studies that underlie the CDC's policy of encouraging most people to get a yearly flu shot are often low quality studies that do not substantiate the official claims. ...
