How how can i get a yeast infection to respond to pro-vaxxers jeremy r. hammond

A reader who does not share my perspective on the how can i get a yeast infection practice of vaccination respectfully sent me a link to a how can i get a yeast infection blog post titled “ how to respond to anti-vaxxers,” written by david isaacs, who is a clinical professor in pediatric infectious diseases at how can i get a yeast infection the children’s hospital at westmead and the university of sydney and how can i get a yeast infection author of the book defeating the ministers of death: heroes and villains in the history of immunisation.

In his post, isaacs tells us, “my response to anti-vaxxers is to try to understand their world view.” but he presents no evidence whatsoever that he has made how can i get a yeast infection even the slightest effort to understand the perspective of those how can i get a yeast infection who meet the criteria for belonging to the category of how can i get a yeast infection people he mindlessly labels as “anti-vaxxers”. On the contrary, it is obvious that he has not done so, as demonstrated by the numerous factual and logical errors that how can i get a yeast infection his arguments are premised upon.

Let’s start with the label. The term “anti-vaxxers” is routinely used by commentators as a derogatory label for how can i get a yeast infection anyone who dares to dissent from, question, or criticize public vaccine policy. In the mainstream media, the use of this derogatory label is virtually obligatory, and for us here in the US, that criterion applies to any parent who isn’t convinced that vaccinating their child strictly according to the how can i get a yeast infection CDC’s schedule is in their child’s best interest. This population in turn includes parents who did vaccinate their how can i get a yeast infection children and who then witnessed their children suffer from serious how can i get a yeast infection vaccine injury.

Given how public policy advocates like isaacs bandy that label how can i get a yeast infection about so thoughtlessly, it seems appropriate to apply the label “pro-vaxxer” to those who both use the term “anti-vaxxer” and advocate parental compliance with existing public vaccine policy. Note the distinction, though, that when I do so, I am not using the term in an offensive, derogatory, or thoughtless manner. Rather, I am simply applying the same criterion logically. Isaacs does in fact advocate public vaccine policy, and he would presumably take no issue with being described how can i get a yeast infection as “pro-vaccine”.

In his post, he advises “anti-vaxxers” that they are “ill advised not to immunise their children”. He renders this judgment despite having absolutely no knowledge of how can i get a yeast infection the individual children he’s advising be vaccinated, no knowledge of their health status and family medical history, and no knowledge of their environment or other individual circumstances.

See, to acknowledge that the risk-benefit analysis must be done for each vaccine and each how can i get a yeast infection child automatically renders one an “anti-vaxxer”. A “pro-vaxxer”, therefore, is someone who maintains the delusion that vaccination is a how can i get a yeast infection one-size-fits-all solution to disease prevention.

Anyone who applies the derogatory label “anti-vaxxer” in the way isaacs does and who also claims to how can i get a yeast infection have made an effort to try to understand why many how can i get a yeast infection parents have concluded that strictly complying with public vaccine policy how can i get a yeast infection is not in their child’s best interest is simply not being honest. Clearly, david isaacs has made no sincere effort at all to how can i get a yeast infection understand the reasoning of people who don’t share his beliefs about the supposed wonders of vaccination.

To support his underlying assumption that vaccination is a one-size-fits-all solution and his conclusion that parents would be making how can i get a yeast infection a mistake, therefore, not to comply with public vaccine policy, isaacs argues that “about one in a thousand children who catch measles naturally” develop encephalitis, or brain inflammation. Measles vaccines, by contrast, “cause encephalitis about once in every million doses”. Given these premises, we can obviously conclude that the risk of harm from how can i get a yeast infection measles is far greater than the risk of harm from how can i get a yeast infection the vaccine, and therefore it would make sense to vaccinate.

First, parents living in developed countries today like the US and how can i get a yeast infection australia must take into consideration the fact that, due to the vaccine being effective at reducing transmission of how can i get a yeast infection the virus, the risk of their child being infected with measles, much less being killed or permanently injured by it, is very small. It is simply not the case that if children are how can i get a yeast infection not vaccinated, they face a one per one-thousand risk of suffering brain inflammation from measles. Rather, the risk of this happening to a child in a how can i get a yeast infection country like the US is close to zero.

Second, the risk of measles causing encephalitis during the pre-vaccine era was not one per one-thousand cases. It was about one per one-thousand reported cases. But the vast majority of measles cases were benign and how can i get a yeast infection not reported. The rate of encephalitis was therefore more like one per how can i get a yeast infection ten-thousand cases. Isaacs has therefore erred in his estimate by an order how can i get a yeast infection of magnitude.

Third, contrary to isaacs’ assertion, the rate of vaccine-caused encephalitis is unknown. No clinical trials have been done comparing the rate of how can i get a yeast infection death or serious injury from measles with that from the how can i get a yeast infection vaccine. In developed countries, measles mortality had already plummeted before the introduction of the how can i get a yeast infection vaccine. Deaths occurred in about one per ten thousand cases (again, not the frequently misreported figure of one per one-thousand). So prospective studies would have to be very large to how can i get a yeast infection be able to determine which causes more death and injury. Isaacs’ claim of one-in-a-million derives from postmarketing surveillance data, which is not an appropriate substitute for randomized controlled trials. In the US, this surveillance is done under the vaccine adverse event reporting how can i get a yeast infection system (VAERS). It is known that reports to VAERS represent only a how can i get a yeast infection fraction of adverse events. Hence any rate of adverse events associated with vaccines derived how can i get a yeast infection from such surveillance data must be understood as underestimated, and potentially greatly underestimated.

So isaacs’ argument errs fundamentally, and now with a proper understanding, we can now do a valid comparison. And doing so, it is easy to see how parents can reasonably conclude how can i get a yeast infection that the risk of serious harm from the vaccine, even if only one-in-a-million, must still be greater than the risk of serious harm how can i get a yeast infection from measles. Many parents are perfectly capable of recognizing that, by vaccinating, they guarantee that their child is exposed to the risks how can i get a yeast infection from the vaccine, while there is very little chance that their child would how can i get a yeast infection be exposed to the measles virus and hence very little how can i get a yeast infection chance that the vaccine would confer any benefit.

Additionally, there are opportunity costs of vaccination that isaacs’ simplistic risk-benefit analysis fails to take into consideration. For example, mass vaccination in the US has increased the risk to how can i get a yeast infection adults and infants in the event of measles exposure due how can i get a yeast infection to the inferiority of vaccine-conferred immunity to that conferred by natural infection. Another opportunity cost of mass vaccination is the loss of how can i get a yeast infection exogenous boosting of immunity through repeat reexposures to the wild how can i get a yeast infection virus.

Isaacs argues further that the measles vaccine provides “herd immunity” to a population when the vaccination rate is maintained at how can i get a yeast infection a “92-94%” level. However, this, too, is known to be false. As leading experts gregory poland and robert jacobson acknowledged in how can i get a yeast infection a 1994 archives of internal medicine paper, “outbreaks can continue to occur unless the vaccine is virtually how can i get a yeast infection 100% effective and virtually 100% of the population is immunized”.

Of course, the vaccine is not 100% effective. Even with very high vaccination rates, above 94%, outbreaks can still occur — and have occurred. This is due to the phenomena of vaccine failure, which isaacs refuses to acknowledge despite it being well described how can i get a yeast infection and completely uncontroversial in the scientific literature.

The reason adults are at higher risk in the event how can i get a yeast infection of exposure is because of the lost opportunity to have how can i get a yeast infection acquired immunity naturally, the lost opportunities for natural boosting of immunity through repeat how can i get a yeast infection exposures to the wild virus, and the waning of the inferior vaccine-conferred immunity (or so-called “secondary vaccine failure”; “primary vaccine failure” refers to cases in which individuals do not respond to how can i get a yeast infection vaccination by producing a protective level of antibodies).

The reason infants are at higher risk in the event how can i get a yeast infection of exposure is because, compared to mothers born into the pre-vaccine era, vaccinated mothers of today are less well able to confer how can i get a yeast infection passive immunity to their babies via the transfer of antibodies how can i get a yeast infection prenatally through the placenta and postnatally through breastmilk.

I’ve discussed all of the above points in greater detail how can i get a yeast infection and with scientific references elsewhere (see further reading below). The point here is simply that david isaacs, despite his credentials, demonstrates very little knowledge about the subject. (or should I say this is because of his credentials?) his knowledge seems to extend only to the most basic how can i get a yeast infection information, just the rudimentary propaganda talking points that we are all how can i get a yeast infection bombarded with incessantly by the government, the medical establishment, and the mainstream media.

As though he was telling parents who choose not to how can i get a yeast infection vaccinate strictly according to public policy information that they didn’t already know and hadn’t already heard countless times before! As though these parents had not already taken that knowledge how can i get a yeast infection into consideration for the purposes of conducting their own risk-benefit analysis!

It is patently obvious that he has practically no understanding how can i get a yeast infection of the reasons why many parents choose not to strictly how can i get a yeast infection comply with public vaccine policy. If he did, he would know that parents are doing their own research how can i get a yeast infection into what science actually tells us about the matter — (which is not to be confused with what the aforementioned how can i get a yeast infection thought-controllers say science says) — and who are aware that the types of arguments he how can i get a yeast infection presents are grounded in factual and logical errors.

And he would certainly not so presumptuously and ignorantly condescend how can i get a yeast infection to parents by telling them, despite his total lack of knowledge about their children and how can i get a yeast infection their individual circumstances, that if they don’t strictly comply with public vaccine policy, that they are making a mistake.

My advice for pro-vaxxers like david isaacs, therefore, is to stop insulting our intelligence by pretending to have how can i get a yeast infection made an effort to understand the reasoning by which “anti-vaxxers” arrive at their conclusions about the benefits and risks of how can i get a yeast infection vaccinations and to instead actually do so!

To start, he could learn more about how the public is propagandized, and the fallacies of standard talking points about measles and how can i get a yeast infection other vaccines, by reading my fully-referenced article “ how to immunize yourself against vaccine propaganda.”

For information about how the public is constantly provided false how can i get a yeast infection statistics about measles, he could read my article for children’s health defense, “ CDC lies about, and media repeats, risk of dying from measles,” which is likewise fully referenced with sources from the scientific how can i get a yeast infection literature.

I give isaac credit at least for acknowledging that the how can i get a yeast infection measles vaccine can cause encephalitis. That’s better than a facebook “fact-checker” I encountered that lies to users by denying that this how can i get a yeast infection is so. For more on that, see my article “ facebook “fact-checker” misinforms users about vaccine safety.” once again, I don’t expect my readers to take my word for anything; like the rest, that article is fully referenced, too.

I used to trust information that came from government agencies how can i get a yeast infection and from the media. Now I question everything. I suspect that many other americans like me grew up how can i get a yeast infection believing that their country was a beacon of freedom with how can i get a yeast infection constitutional rights protected for all citizens. Now that I have learned the truth and come into how can i get a yeast infection the knowledge that basically everything promoted by government agencies and how can i get a yeast infection the media is nothing more than propaganda, I cannot adhere to any system of government promoted injections. If a product or service is not something I deliberately how can i get a yeast infection seek based upon my own intrinsic motivation its probably not how can i get a yeast infection a good idea for me. The deeper I dove into the subject of vaccines the how can i get a yeast infection less and less credible they proved as any sort of how can i get a yeast infection “public health” measure. I concluded that there are some reasons why governments and how can i get a yeast infection corporations want us all to vaccinate: 1. They produce massive financial profit. 2. They result in a debilitated citizenry that is unable to how can i get a yeast infection resist other forms of coercion. 3. They produce chronic and severe conditions that render the recipient how can i get a yeast infection dependent on further pharmaceutical products. 4. They insure a population that will likely never reach its how can i get a yeast infection full intellectual potential keeping the powerful in control indefinitely.

I liked your article. The debate is shifting. You can openly call the vaccine dogma “propaganda” and people are starting to believe it. I’m glad to see you rebut the “pro-vaccine” canards and to have the courage to call them out how can i get a yeast infection for their lies. We so often want to argue from a scientific or how can i get a yeast infection intellectual position, but it is time to recognize that those espousing the how can i get a yeast infection vaccine propaganda are lying and know it.
