Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness by Thomas Cowan M.D.

Vaccines, Autoimmunity, and the Assault on Childhood

This book could not be more timely. The vaccine debate is sometimes a polarizing one. Pitting the Anti-Vaccers against the ones who choose to vaccinate.

Cowan not only looks at the ways childhood disease has changed with the onset of vaccines which are made by companies and pushed by them and the government. Sometimes knowing they are not safe. But when there is big money to be made, we all know how the big Pharms operate.

He offers a different look at the spiritual side as well. He questions the whys and hows. He asks especially why did we have a polio out break between 1916 and 11918? And those answers are extremely interesting.

He speaks to autism and childhood diseases. Some which in the past have contributed to a healthy immune system.

I am torn on this issue. But I believe in the right to choose your child’s health plan and belong to a Vaccination PAC here in Oklahoma where we successfully passed a bill that would put that choice into the hands of the parents. And to me that is where it belongs.

Any thoughts?

    1. So do I. My youngest son went into a coma after his first DPT shot. It was a long 2 years of not knowing what would happen. Thankfully we never had him vaccinated again and he is never sick.

      1. 😳…Oh no!! That’s terrible. I’m so sorry you had to go through that ordeal. 😔 I don’t blame you in the least for feeling like you do.

        There are a few childhood illnesses that make me circumspect when it comes to vaccinations. And to me, the jury is still out on the flu shot. 🤦🏽‍♀️

      2. I never take the flu shot. A lot more research needs to be done and not by drug companies.

      3. I’ve never had it either. I feel like the people I know who get it wind up with the flu.

  3. The thinking is so skewed…pro-vaxxers demonize the parents who don’t.
    Is it too much to ask for SOMEONE, some AGENCY that will do the proper testing and trials and have our backs?
    Why is it ok for the CDC to have a vested interest in vaccine continuance via billions from Big Pharma and patent rights, but expect them to have our best interests at heart?
    It’s like we are being gaslighted…how did we let this happen?
    The end game is Big Pharma is the biggest conglomerate in the world, and they will never, ever admit to wrongdoing for their biggest cash cow.
    Rockefeller should burn in hell for starting this travesty.
