A Thumbs Up Media Review
Are Vaccines Safe?
By Mary Tocco
Review by Tim Boyd
This is a two-DVD set with a running time of almost 2 1/2 hours and is packed with information. Mary Tocco has obviously talked to the masses before and is very effective in making her points. After listing the sources that our health beliefs come from, she gets the audience involved with a little game of “finish the phrase” to illustrate how effective advertising can be. The audience had no trouble finishing phrases like “Plop, plop, fizz, fizz …” or “Winston tastes good like a …”, catch phrases from television ads that haven’t been widely aired for decades.
Practical information about what your rights are as a parent is covered in-depth in the video and in detail on the NVIC website (http://www.909shot.com/). In addition to the objectionable ingredients in vaccines that you usually hear of, she lists appetizing things like fecal matter, dog and monkey kidneys, antibiotics and rabbit brains. In some cases this is grown in a medium containing aborted fetal lung tissue. All this serious stuff is broken up with humorous but scathing observations on the medical system. She quotes several times from Robert Mendelsohn, MD which are found in his book How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor.
The connection is made in this video between autism and gut dysbiosis, as we’ve heard before from Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. Mary Tocco states outright that vaccines cause autism whereas Dr. Campbell-McBride would say are a contributing factor but are not the root cause of the condition. Either way, vaccines are a problem, but I have no problem giving this DVD a thumbs up.
