When it's good information, crowdsourcing ROCKS! Additional fine-tuning here.


From comments at link:


Actually, you have been misled.

Here is the European List of Countries, and their recommended vaccinations: http://www.euvac.net/graphics/euvac/vaccination/vaccination.html

Eleven prominent countries either omit entirely, or specifically cite the HepB vaccine only for mothers testing to have active HepB infection; these 11 countries are: Sweden, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK.

Most of the rest of the EU countries include the HepB vaccine as part of a 5-part (hexavalent) shot and given starting at 2 months. Some indeed recommend at birth. HOWEVER, the constituents/excipients in the European vaccines may also be less toxic than U.S. vaccines (I do not know).

At any rate, very few give the HepB vaccine at birth as is done here in the U.S.

In this case...



From the outside, all signs seemed to point to heat causing the infant's death.

But Dr. Clifford Nelson of the state Medical Examiner's Office ruled the case a "sudden unexplained infant death." He said he couldn't definitively say how Jillian died.

Nelson told The Oregonian that he considered information gathered from the scene, statements from the parents, the child's medical history and his own physical examination of the baby. He saw no signs of an undiagnosed disease in the girl or reaction to shots she received at her check-up. There was nothing odd in toxicology tests.

Nelson noted that the girl's parents had told police when they last fed their daughter. Based on their statements and examining her digestive system, Nelson said he estimated the infant died during the first hour she spent inside the car. He then compared that finding to how quickly the temperature in the car rose.

He concluded that she likely died before the car's temperature became deadly.



...During the past 10 years, between 20 and 30 infants have died suddenly each year with no signs of trauma or illness, according to data from the Oregon Health Authority.

"They are probably the most intellectually challenging cases that we get," Nelson said.

Kicking the thread while trying to (mis)brand me? Here's a secret.

When I post information it's not purely "for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do." Get it? Apologies to William Blake. Unaltered quote available in jpg format on Twitter.

You can have the last word here. Let me guess: "YOU... "

Here's the first thing I ever read by her.


A Ripple of Hope: When Courage and Conscience Collide

June 10, 2008
by Robyn O'Brien

I was raised on capitalism and the Wall Street Journal. As a child, my family celebrated the birth of Reaganomics the way one would have celebrated the birth of a child. There was prosperity to be had by all if only we believed. My father, like so many of his era, fully supported deregulation and the notion of trickle down economics. If we loosen the regulatory purse strings that government tightly controls, we will all prosper. The system works.

In our house, the Reagans had an almost royal status to watch them dance, with Nancy in her red dress, gave me the feeling, as a child, that I was watching some magnificent combination of Frank Sinatra and a foreign prince with his graceful companion on his arm.

I trusted my political values would serve me well I was loyal, patriotic and supported the system.

And then one of my children got sick. With a blood condition that no one could pronounce and a pediatric mandate requiring immediate enrollment at a Children's Hospital. And I awoke.


Here's the latest jpg from Twitter I've seen by her:

She's so annoying to Big Food and others. I can dig it.

IMO, it would be prudent to follow the new guidelines here (top 2 paragraphs).

No, I want transparency. You want to shut it all down and pretend everything's fine. (nt)
