Dear Editor, Once again, the common approach used to retaliate against those who question uses bullying and demeaning tactics. We are increasingly seeing this method to anyone who publicly disagrees or challenges the status quo or has an opinion different from what is considered the mainstream. So I will continue to ask questions. Why is it that it has never been tested to find out the impact of repeated vaccinations? Why is that that no one knows the long term consequences of vaccines (i.e. why has it never been tested)? Why are the symptoms of mercury toxicity and autism similar? How can ingredients such as aluminum, MSG, formaldehyde, gentamicin sulfate, chicken embryos, sodium deoxycholate, polysorbate 80, betapropiolactone, and other vaccine ingredients be considered healthy when they cause serious reactions and disease in the body? How can one industry be granted liability immunity from causing any damages to people? Why has the Federal Vaccine Injury Compensation program paid out over $3.5 billion to more than 3,500 vaccine victims? How can the vaccine industry make $30 billion a year and still be considered to be not “generally profitable” by some? Why have most of the recent outbreaks of mumps occurred in populations which have been thoroughly inoculated with the mumps vaccine? Why don’t doctors even consider that there may be other ways to achieve better health which are also better and longer lasting than vaccines? Why has Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, MD the world’s leading immunologist stated that the chances of getting Alzheimer’s is ten times higher if and individual has received five consecutive flu shots? How does one explain that vaccinated children have been tested to have 12 times the amount of mercury as unvaccinated children? It would be refreshing to get answers to these questions instead of the bullying tactics that have become so common place. Considering that the United States is one of the sickest countries in the world while at the same time being the most vaccinated, it is time to have an open discussion. The answer does not appear to be more vaccines. Sincerely, Tom Lankering Basalt, Co.
