    I see the MMR schedule has been bought down to 12 months to combat a measles outbreak.
    A very dangerous move in my opinion, and done without a care in the world by medical authorities.

    HDA interviewed Nicki Turner and asked her about the safety aspects. Turner brushed her concerns off, and I noticed HDA was hesitant to pursue that line of inquiry. The reason for that is quite simple.. people who ask questions about vaccinations are ”ANTI VAXX NUTTERS.” The medical/media PR campaign has been a complete success.

    The question HDA would probably have asked is: Why is the MMR schedule set at 15 months to start with.

    So what can concerned parents do?

    Famed doctor, Archie Kalokerinos found that giving aboriginal children Vitamin C before vaccinations helped cut mortality rates significantly.

    I wonder if Nikki Turner or parents know of this strategy?

      Not sure how scurvy has any relationship with measles.

        There isn’t any, I suspect. There was no connection between the two illnesses or between vaccines and scurvy.. Scurvy prevention has been done for centuries; didn’t Captain Cook use pickled cabbages or something like that ?

        We discussed the lowering of the vax age here when it was on the news. I doubt very much that it was done without good reason or done on a whim. That is an insult to the medical profession.

        Concerned parents can prevent the risk of blindness, pneumonia and other preventable results of diseases like measles by having their children immunised. Risking one’s child’s life is a very odd way to show concern.

        I’m sorry Noel, sometimes I assume others are as well read on vaccinations as I am.

        I might add, most people in the western world, unless they supplement, are deficient in VC. It is falsely assumed that because no clinical symptoms of VC deficiency are present, then they must have adequate VC levels. This is proven false in many cases when they start supplementing and health conditions clear up. In my own case a bad keloid scar I had had for years just melted away after 3 months of supplementing with 1000mg of VC a day.

        Unlike other commentators I try to offer suggestions that may help. I don’t go for puerile point scoring.

          Who do you think will be helped by antivax scaremongering and misinformation ?

          We are probably all well-read on the subject, but we don’t read debunked nonsense.

          • Keloid scars can be frozen off and may be helped by serums, inc. some with vitamin C, but they won’t disappear because someone eats vitamin C pills. If this one did, it can’t have been one. Scar tissue doesn’t melt away when it’s raised as keloid scars are. Upping the dose of vitamins will do nothing but up the company’s profits.

      Lurchy, be thankful you aren’t in Hong Kong. Ferals like you will be shipped across the border to the mother land for torture once this new law is passed.

      Put on your strides and take RED for a walk. And be thankful.

        If he becomes obnoxious enough, he may be banned again.

        He has been moderated for making outrageous statements and claims about people.
