Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,


         Did you hear the one about the Italian family who went to court claiming that their son became autistic after receiving the MMR vaccine? No folks this isn’t a bad joke. A court in Rimini Italy recently awarded the Bocca family 174,000 Euros (just under $220,000) to be paid by the Italian Health Ministry. So why hasn’t it been on the news? Why aren’t parents given the information to make an educated choice on when or whether at all to have their children vaccinated? Information exists but it is not being disseminated to us by our medical dictatorship.

         The all too familiar story…Little Valentino Bocca received the MMR vaccine in 2004 at the age of 14 months. He was a bright and happy child, mastering the skills of coordination. On the same day he received his shot he refused to eat; and developed diarrhea. He spent many days and nights crying in pain. He then lost the abilities he had previously mastered such as the use of his spoon. His parents immediately suspected the vaccine. A year later he was diagnosed with autism.

         This is the very same MMR vaccine distributed in Britain and here in the USA.

         Dr Andrew Wakefield was the first doctor to make the connection between the MMR vaccine, chronic bowel inflammation, and symptoms of regressive autism in 1998. His research was vehemently contested but since then dozens of studies have supported his findings. Even so, he has suffered the wrath of Big Pharma that cranked out a smear campaign against him. This attack on him was so publicized that many news stories often wrongly refer to his finds as “Andrew Wakefield’s now discredited claim”; he was discredited not by science but by false news stories and powerful corporate influence. Such is the fate of the whistle blower when there is that much money at stake.

         There is some very hopeful work being done by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride; her research has shown that there is an intense interaction between intestinal health, your immune system and brain. If you don’t have the healthy flora in your gut it causes the intestines to leak toxins into the blood stream and carries them to the brain. In this scenario the vaccine is the proverbial straw that breaks the camels back.  Any of you who know me or have received my newsletters for some time now, know that I am big on fermented foods that supply healthy bacteria to your digestive system. So Dr. Campbell-McBride wrote a book called “Gut and Psychology Syndrome” (GAPS) and she states in her book that if the gut flora is unhealthy a child is more at risk from a vaccine whether or not it contains Thimerisol. So who is at risk? Babies who are breastfed tend to have healthier gut flora due to the fact that they are drinking live milk with all it’s enzymes intact. Formula fed babies are often lacking this healthy flora.

         Dr. Campbell-McBride suggests that you have your child’s stool tested to determine the flora health and also have their urine tested for metabolites and this give you a good picture on your child’s immune health.
         I suggest that it is our DUTY as parents to read the vaccine insert before you choose to have your child vaccinated. The Merck MMR insert states some side effects are: Diabetes, Anaphylaxis (life threatening allergic reaction), Pancreatitis (painful inflammation of the pancreas) and Encephalitis (swelling of the brain).  It also states that the, “healthcare provider should provide the vaccine information required to be given with each vaccination to the patient, parent, or guardian.” But instead most providers give you a single sheet of paper telling you how important it is to get the vaccine and whitewashing any side effects.

         It’s just plain wrong for our government and healthcare providers to pressure parents to get their children vaccinated with the MMR shot while ignoring that there is strong evidence that this vaccine is linked to chronic bowel inflammation, and regressive autism. They are not even willing to explore the extenuating circumstances such as a child’s immune health at the time of vaccination.
         The number of autism cases has risen sharply since the 1970s, with 1 in 88 American children and 1 in 64 British children affected.

Love and Light, Lori Jacobs
