Patrick Gentempo, D.C.: When I was a kid, there were a few vaccines that an infant got. Now there are so many.
Tim O’Shea D.C.: It’s called “shot day”, or the well-baby program. Today, a child who is getting all his vaccines in this country will be getting sixty eight vaccines.
If you were a baby growing up in the 1950’s, you’re getting about four vaccines. That means since the 1950’s the number of vaccines for children has increased 17 times since the 1950’s to the present.
Patrick Gentempo, D.C.: Even if individual vaccines might be safe, imagine now combining all these, putting together into a little infant that’s just born, in it’s first 18 months of life and you’re playing with real fire here.
Toni Bark, M.D.: Now the recommendation by the National Vaccine Advisory Committee is to give the HPV vaccine to newborns, day one of life.
First of all, cervical cancer takes 15 years or more in the making. It is mostly induced by certain strains of HPV virus. The antibodies for the vaccine last on average three to five years. It makes zero sense. The antibodies last three to five years, is this newborn gonna be having sex in the first five years of life?
I don’t think so and yet the recommendation is to give newborns the vaccine? Just like they did the Hepatitis B vaccine.
Patrick Gentempo, D.C.: Two ways to get Hepatitis B through sexual intercourse or IV drug use. They say that the vaccine gives immunity for approximately seven years.
Why would you take the risk of injecting a little baby with the vaccine for a disease that happens through sexual contact or IV drug use if by the time they’re seven the vaccines not going to be worth it anyway so now look at risk versus benefit, there is no benefit but there is a big risk there.
Toni Bark, M.D.: I’m not an alarmist, I’m not a conspiracy theorist but there is a disconnect here. You know, giving somebody, day one of life, a vaccine that’s never been tested on infants, can’t even legally be tested on newborns makes zero sense unless it’s lining your pocket.
Tim O’Shea D.C.: In 1993 we were spending three billion dollars on vaccines in the entire world. By the year 2000 it was about twenty billion dollars a year globally that we were spending on vaccines. Then you have to go try to follow the money, again you can start to see how processes and procedure in our culture can be bought.
