This issue of Wise Traditions addresses the subject of toxins in our environment―how to avoid them and how to support the body’s efforts to get rid of them―with three excellent articles by speakers at our recent conference.
In the midst of working on this issue, the story of the Disneyland measles outbreak hit the newspapers, along with strident calls to eliminate the religious and philosophical exemptions that help concerned parents avoid vaccinations in forty-eight out of fifty states. The Foundation has sent several action alerts having to do with signing petitions, posting comments and protesting proposed legislation. (Good news: draconian proposed bills have already been withdrawn in three states: Oregon, Washington and Maryland.)
We have also sent out two press releases (they are posted at the Press tab on our website), which point out that vaccinated individuals can spread disease, especially the live viral vaccinations such as chicken pox, measles, rubella, flu, polio and smallpox. In addition, we have posted numerous memes and links to information about the dangers of vaccinations on our Facebook page.
These efforts have generated thousands of comments, most of them in support; but several have criticized the Foundation for straying from our fundamental message of nutrition, while others express surprise at our stance opposing vaccinations.
The promotion of non-toxic therapies is part of the WAPF mission statement, and we published an article in 2005 outlining the dangers of vaccinations (westonaprice.org/health-topics/vaccinations-parentsinformed-choice/), so none of our members should be surprised that we have joined with other groups to publicize the dangers of vaccinations. In fact, our board of directors is unanimous and adamant about using the WAPF’s influence and organizational skills to warn parents about what can happen to children when they are vaccinated.
We will be devoting our Summer issue to this subject. We would especially appreciate hearing from parents of vaccine-injured children. We know that it can be painful to share your story, but the world needs to hear what happens when vaccinations go wrong so that other children may be saved.
Childhood diseases are either mild or nonexistent when parents practice the kind of good nutrition that we advocate. Diets rich in vitamins A and C can protect children against disease much better than vaccinations, and with side effects that are good, never harmful. Public health policy should be aimed at accurate information about nutrition, not the promotion of vaccinations that actually suppress the immune system and often have tragic side effects.
