Are We Poisoning a generation of children?

Jill Skurnowicz, RN, BSN, MS, CRNA, ND candidate would like to share the following thoughts with Healthy Lombard visitors:

Welcome to the new normal. The new normal consists of a world where one in six children suffer from some form of developmental disorder ranging from mild disabilities such as speech and language impairments to serious developmental disabilities, such as intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, and autism.1 An estimated 9.6 million of today’s children (13.1 percent) under the age of 18 suffer with asthma.2 Today upwards of 20% of children are effected by Atopic Dermatitis also known as Eczema.3 8% of children have food allergies; milk and peanuts top the list.4 Obsessive compulsive disorder occurs in 1-3% of today’s children.5 The new normal consists of a world where chronic disease and disability plague America’s youth.

American children are the most highly vaccinated children in the world yet they are among the most chronically ill and disabled. “Six in every 1,000 babies born in the U.S. died at birth or in the first year of life in 2013, triple the rate of Japan or Norway, double the rate of Ireland, Israel and Italy.”6 The overall U.S. infant mortality rate is about 42% higher than the comparable country average. “Washington DC, the nation’s capital, also has a much higher infant mortality rate than 34 other capital cities around the world. Babies born in Prague; Tallinn, Estonia; Bratislava, Slovakia; and Warsaw, all have a better chance of survival than children born in the U.S. capital.”6

The question to ask with these statistics is why? Everybody has a toxic tipping point. I am going to dare to spotlight the obvious elephant in the room. We are constantly being exposed through the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and the toxins we are injected with to a chemical onslaught with unknown consequences.

Let’s begin with pre-conception. This generation of mothers are the most vaccinated in the history of the planet with dangerously high levels of toxic metals and environmental herbicides stored in their bodies. Most heavy metals and toxins are stored away in fatty tissue. The brain is one of the fattiest organs in the body. The brain is 60-70% fat. When the mother is pregnant the heavy metals and toxins that she has, readily cross the placental barrier into the developing organs and systems of her vulnerable infant. Remember that the delicate barrier protecting a child’s brain is not yet formed to protect it from the chemical onslaught. Immediately after birth, within 24 hours, the baby is injected with 250 micrograms (mcg) of aluminum, a known neurotoxin. At birth the child also receives a Vitamin K shot which has either Polysorbate 80 that is used in drug delivery systems to open the blood brain barrier or Benzyl Alcohol that damages the underdeveloped liver of the neonate and has led to elevations in bilirubin and liver damage. Could this be why there is such an increase in neonatal jaundice requiring children be placed under the Bili lights in the nursery in record numbers?

Most people are under the impression that vaccines are safe and effective because they falsely assume that the vaccine contains only the antigen mixed with an inert substance like saline or water. They also assume that the vaccine schedule has been tested thoroughly. However, it has never been tested in its entirety as given. Certain individual vaccines have been mildly tested for short durations but the entire vaccine schedule of toxic ingredients has never been tested together. Every parent should be requesting and reading the actual package insert of each vaccine from the manufacturer where the excipient materials and adverse events are documented by the manufacturer.

While the expecting parents are researching the safety of their car seat or crib they rarely research what the infant will be directly injected with on the day of birth. The safe allowable limit of aluminum set by the EPA in a newborn is 20-30 micrograms. How is it that 250 mcg of a known neurotoxin is acceptable to inject in only one of the vaccines that starts this merry-go-round of compulsory vaccination? When researching the vaccine schedule, it is also important to find a Pediatrician, Naturopathic Doctor or Chiropractor that serves the individual needs of the parents and not big pharma. As a health care provider, I fully understand that I am paid by my clients to be their representative and their teacher, not the other way around. Main stream Pediatricians are “firing” families from their practice who opt to change the vaccine schedule or opt out of it entirely for their child. Who are they really serving; big pharma or the parents?

What are some of these ingredients in the vaccines? Aluminum, a known neurotoxin is used as an immune stimulant to boost response to the vaccine; Mercury that is still very prevalent in the flu vaccine given to pregnant women in any trimester is a preservative; formaldehyde, is used as an embalming fluid in the morgue but in vaccines it is used to inactivate live viruses or inactivate toxins; Polysorbate 80, used to open the blood brain barrier in chemotherapy delivery systems acts as an emulsifier to disperse all the other ingredients evenly within the liquid; aborted fetal cells in vaccines come from the culture media the vaccines are cultured on; foreign animal protein from animals such as chickens, pigs, cows, caterpillars, dogs and silkworms to name a few. These are just some of the many additives in vaccines.

If you are harmed by any of the above chemicals in the vaccines or by the vaccine itself, the industry is protected by the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, removing the liability burden from manufacturers for vaccination-related injuries.7

So consider this, pregnant mothers are now getting a flu shot while pregnant and every year until death the child receives a flu shot as recommended by the current CDC schedule. There will be no culpability for patient injury to the flu vaccine manufacturer for any adversity that may occur. Why is this important? That flu vaccine if given from a multi-dose vial has 25 mcg of neurotoxic mercury, the second most neurotoxic substance on the planet next to Uranium and there is no compensation for any injury from injecting a known neurotoxin. The EPA classifies 2 parts per billion a safe amount of mercury for drinking water and 200 parts per billion is classified as toxic waste. Flu shots contain 25,000 parts per billion of ethyl mercury. If you get 5 flu shots in your lifetime you have a 10% increase in contracting Alzheimer’s disease, according to Hugh Fudenberg a leading immunogeneticist who has written over 850 peer reviewed articles. These children are clearly being put at risk.

It is predicted that by 2032 one in two children will be on the Autism Spectrum. It is easy to see that injecting a toxic chemical soup that has not been studied in its entirety into young babies with a poorly formed blood brain barrier and weak immune system has neurologic consequences. Before consenting to the current vaccination schedule of 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18 (50 doses of them by age 6) answer the question: Are we Poisoning a generation of children in pursuit of better health?
