Australian Health Minister Jill Hennessy embodies scientific illiteracy, claiming 'There are NO risks in vaccinating children'

Scientific illiteracy

(NaturalNews) Jill Hennessy, the health minister of Victoria, Australia, shocked and outraged parents of vaccine-injured children recently, when she stated to Channel 10 Melbourne that, "There are no risks in vaccinating your children."

But even the heavily pro-vaccine health establishment admits that there are risks to vaccination, as with any drug. That's why the package insert on any vaccine contains a long list of potential adverse reactions.

Hennessy's statements are a classic example of throwing science out the window in service of a political agenda, and are unbecoming of a health minister. Following are just some of the many examples of science-proven vaccine side effects that Hennessy is either ignorant of, or determined to cover up.

A side effect overview

According to vaccine package inserts and reputable medical literature, vaccines have been linked to serious side effects, including arthritis, blood clots and bleeding, ear infections, fainting (sometimes causing injury), heart attack, kidney failure (requiring dialysis), miscarriage, seizures, sepsis, severe allergies from hives to anaphylactic shock, and sudden death.

In addition, the following diseases have been linked with vaccination: chronic allergies (including asthma and eczema), arthritis, acid reflux, cancer, diabetes (in infants and children), kidney disease, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and a variety of neurological and autoimmune conditions.

In the United States, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, (NVICP) has issued injury compensation awards totaling more than $1.2 billion.

The following is just an overview of some of the scientifically accepted vaccine side effects.

HPV vaccine: This is 'normal?'

A recent article in the Danish Medical Journal reports that a small subset of women who receive human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination seem to develop a consistent set of neurological symptoms that do not correspond with any known disease.

"During the past years, a collection of symptoms primarily consistent with sympathetic nervous system dysfunction have been described as suspected side effects to the Q-HPV vaccine," the researchers wrote.

Does that mean that women who don't develop this rare, still poorly understood condition are safe? Not so, says a 2009 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association. That study reviewed side effects during the first two years after the introduction of the HPV vaccine. The researchers cataloged 12,424 adverse effects, including everything from dizziness to autoimmune diseases. In addition, there were 32 deaths reported.

Shockingly, the researchers declared these rates consistent with the drug safety studies, and comparable to the side effect rates of other vaccines.

Diane Harper of the University of Louisville – whose research was essential in the FDA approval of both HPV vaccines – has now gone on record as saying that for women living in Western countries with access to yearly Pap smears, the risks of the HPV vaccine outweigh its benefits.

Flu vaccine damages nervous system

The worst you're likely to get from a flu shot is a mild case of the flu itself, right? Not so. In fact, the single most common injury compensated through the U.S. vaccine court is a rare autoimmune disorder known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome, triggered in this case by the seasonal flu vaccine.

In Guillain-Barre Syndrome, the immune system mistakes the body's nervous system for a virus and attacks it. This can cause the destruction of the myelin sheath, causing muscular paralysis. While typically triggered by viral infection, Guillain-Barre can also come from the flu vaccine.

The nervous system may be particularly vulnerable to the flu vaccine. In October 2015, the British government agreed to pay about £1 million ($1.5 million) to each of 60 people who had suffered brain damage from the swine flu vaccine – for a total of $90 million.

During the 2009 swine flu outbreak, the British government pushed the vaccine on 60 million people, mostly children. But this vaccine causes narcolepsy and cataplexy in one in 16,000 people.

Narcolepsy results in overwhelming sleepiness during the day, sometimes causing abrupt loss of consciousness. In cataplexy, a person abruptly loses muscle function when experiencing certain emotional stimuli, such as anger, pleasure or excitement. This can cause people to collapse, for example, any time they laugh.

More injured parties are expected to come forward.

The list goes on

This is all just the tip of the iceberg. Evidence continues to emerge of a link between autism and vaccines that has been actively covered up by governments and drug companies for decades. Widespread adoption of the chicken pox vaccine seems to have led to an increase in shingles, in a direct effect of national vaccination, if not technically a side effect of the vaccine itself.

The effects can be even more dire. Between 2006 and 2008, more than 70 children in the Chinese province of Shanxi developed severe side effects after being given vaccines that had not been stored at the proper temperature. A further four children died.

And according to California mother Crystal Downing, her infant son died after being vaccinated against eight different diseases in six different vaccine shots in a single day.

One of the vaccines was for Hepatitis A. This shot is not supposed to be given to children under a year of age.
