Education BEFORE Immunization

I spent the morning, with a dear friend of mine, at a seminar with speaker Mary Tocco, an expert on the truth behind vaccinations. The seminar was an amazing and eye-opening event that shook me to my core. I can't possible share all the information and statistics that I learned this morning, but I will share the key things and a few resources to check out for more information.

If you really want to know what's in your vaccinations, get a copy of your child's vaccination record and go to to see what's in the vaccinations your child's been given. Some of the ingredients in vaccinations are:
* Penol (poison)
* Formaldehyde
* Aluminum Phosphate (toxin previously used in deodorants; stagnates lymph nodes)
* Alum (a preservative that was forbidden to be tested on humans)
* Acetone (like in finger nail polish remover)
* Glycerin (toxic to the liver, kidney and causes lung damage)
* Monosodium Glutamate - MSG
* Plus other toxic metals, lead, cadmium, aluminum & mercury (thimerosol)

Russia, Denmark, Australia, Japan & Great Britain have all banned the use of thimerosol in their vaccinations and it's been removed from horse vaccinations because of the damage done to multi-million dollar race horses.

The "toxic dose" of aluminum according to the FDA is 25 mcg. The Hepatitis B vaccination, given on the FIRST DAY of a child's life, contains 250 mcg of aluminum. By the age of 2 months, a child on "traditional" vaccination schedules would have 1,875 mcg of aluminum in their system.

There has NEVER been a study done to see what happens when you give an infant a variety of shots in a ten minute period, yet that's what we do to children at birth, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, a year, 18 months, 2 years and on! No vaccinations have long-term studies done on them. No "combination shots" are intended to be given together as each separate vaccine is only trial-ed in an individual dose. What happens in your body when you put them all together?

According to a leading researcher, Dr. Todd Elsner, in his new book, What the Pharmaceutical Companies Don't Want You To Know About Vaccines..., abortion clinics are aborting babies LIVE and "harvesting" their organs (aka human diploid tissue) so they can be purchased, according to a sales list, to be used in the development of vaccinations. This includes, but is certainly not limited to, the flu shot.

Mercury was to have been removed from all vaccinations in the 1950's after the Blue Ribbon Panel Congressional Committee was formed and investigated the use of toxic levels of mercury in vaccinations. In 1956 the CDC showed reports of the toxic levels of thimerosol. Yet as late as 2003 into 2004, many vaccinations still contained toxic levels. Mercury, along with many other metals, stay in our system for life. They affect our children and then when combined with more metals, our grandchildren.

In the 1950's, children were given three vaccinations by the age of 5 years old. In 1983, a child was given ten vaccinations by the time they were 5 years old. In 2009, by age six, a child is given 37 vaccinations for 18 diseases. That's 81 injected bacterial or viral components. Yet many of these diseases were eradicated by the improvements in sanitation, healthy drinking water and healthier food storage.

Time lines and research shows that cases of disease and illness usually drops over time and then when a vaccination is introduced into the population the occurrences increase. When there is an "outbreak" of a inoculated disease, such as measles, 75-90% of the affected population is the vaccinated population, NOT the unvaccinated population.

A vaccination shot is given directly into the body where it is then processed through the muscle, tissue and blood stream. Yet many vaccinations say "Do not enter into the blood system". How can that be possible? And when we get a virus the "normal" way, by acquiring it naturally, it doesn't enter our blood stream, therefore avoiding the brain and many organs that are affected by the immunization.

Matt and I have chosen to delay the vaccinations of our children. There may come a time when they get them...there may not. But I can't, with a clear conscious, give my boys large doses of things that don't belong in little, developing bodies. They just can't handle it. Do you think you'd be "ok" after having many strains of diseases injected into your body all at once? I don't. I wouldn't do it willingly myself. How can their little bodies learn to fight off everything when there are so many things going on in their bodies?

I don't fault anyone who does vaccinate. Goodness knows MUCH more of the US does than doesn't. But, I do wish people would do research and investigate what they're agreeing to put in their bodies before the time came. Educate Before You Vaccinate! Please, for your children and your grandchildren. What you do after that is your choice; and we've made ours.

GREAT Info!! Thanks for sharing. I am on the fence about everything but feel very presure to do so by the ped. and can't find a ped that will work with me. I found one but sitting in her waiting room for 2 hours was not worth it to me esp. with 2 little ones in tow. However, I finally got G's ped to hold off and let me make the choice when I am ready but she still pushes.

I am going to fwd this on to a few of my friends who are expecting and don't have children yet and to a few more friends that need this info. Thank you!!

Jen said...

Thanks for sharing what you learned today! i wish I could have gone, but I am glad I have you to fill me in!

Jess said...

I'm so glad our ped is so supportive in our choice to delay...I couldn't imagine all of those at once or even when they are so little! I wish I could have gone today but thank you for the links they are great!

Christine said...

Learning much about vaccines from a health care perspective I am torn, I agree, but don't agree with non-vaccinating. Obviously my children are not vaccinated to standards, but I will never agree not to vaccinate them. Thanks for passing along the information.

shawmutt said...

It seems you are sorely lacking in your education, instead inspiring to follow in the footsteps of insipid celebrity. Your list of ingredients in vaccines says as much.

You should thank those who do get immunized, they are keeping your kids safe. Unfortunately herd immunity is breaking down thanks to irresponsibity and disinformation--do a Google search on "measles outbreaks".

I apologize if I'm coming off as too harsh, but the rampant b.s. "education" gets to me, as I have two little ones of my own, and we have a measles outbreak in the next county over.

I recommend a few blogs to you. and are two I recommend checking out to further your education, for your children's sake.

Thank you for your time.

Octavo said...

So, you would prefer that your children die in the most painful and horrendous way possible than get them immunized?

Your laundry list of ingredients indicates just how badly you understand this issue or more possibly how obviously mislead you've been.

Please read this article carefully and pass it along.

Ellisa said...

Thank you for your time shawmutt & Octavo. I've done my research ON BOTH SIDES and I'm happy with the decision I've made. I don't come to your blog to tell you how wrong your decision is, I posted it on my own.

The world is FULL of decisions that will always differ, both believing they are best for their child. Staying at home vs. working, breast feeding vs. formula feeding, and many more as you know. We just have to agree to disagree.

shawmutt said...

You are more than welcome to come over to and discuss all the reasons you won't vaccinate your children.

Unfortunately, as a public blog, people find your comments in Google searches when trying to find information on vaccination. This is how I found your blog.

While you are certainly entitled to your view, perhaps you should consider your possible audience before publishing the misinformation and anti-vaccination rhetoric you regurgitated here. The title of your post is Education BEFORE Immunization. I recommend more Education BEFORE spreading Misinformation that is potentially hazardous to my and other's children.

The D'Alessandro Family said...

wow. very interesting.. both in the blog and reading the comments :)

I believe that it's every parents' decision.. I won't fault you if you don't fault me. But I do have one question only bc I just filled out a bunch a paperwork for Izzy to go to school. What happens when you sign your kids up for school and they ask for your immunization records? I know that "religious beliefs" are usually respected, but that's about all I know. I was under the impression that children aren't allowed in school if not immunized. Could be the wrong impression! Love ya

Ellisa said...

Shawmutt, the internet is FULL of information regarding reasons TO vaccinate your kids. And the information can be just as misleading as it's most by drug companies and the CDC, neither of which I feel have a vested interest in my children. And my kids are partially vaccinated. Just on my schedule and my terms.

Michelle, you just sign a waiver. Lots of kids in schools aren't vaccinated. You can choose three options; religious, medical (allergies, strong reactions) or philisophical (safety, lack of long term studies, etc). No school can refuse your child because they aren't current on shots.

Shawn and Laura said...

Hi! Im a friend of Michelle's...I also delay vaccinate my youngest 2. We get all the vaccines, but the most I get is 2 at a time, and that is only specific ones. There is an awesome book, The Vaccine Book, by Dr. Sears. He has an awesome delayed schedule in his book.

I was not surprised to see comments already jumping at you saying you are wrong to not vaccinate, when you clearly stated that you are delaying them. Also, good luck finding a doctor who will understand...its not very easy. We get shots at the county, so I have more control!

Also, with schools, private schools can deny you entry into school without shots, public can't, but will give you a hard time and will also send you home from school if there is an outbreak in the area. Ohio has all 3 exemptions on shots, while many other states only have 1. Good luck and get the book! Its a good read.

Shawn and Laura said...

oh yes! When I first looked into then got me researching car another whole topic! Michelle will tell you that I turned psycho about car seats! I have to limit what I research before I end up keeping my kids inside the house all day! Just warning that the researching can be addicting! Not sure if its a good or bad thing!

Ellisa said...

Laura~ Welcome to my world. ;) Thanks for stopping by.

Payton (my 6 yr old) attends a charter school and they didn't give us ANY issue with the waiver. In fact, there at 30 families at the school who don't vax or delay vax.

For my kids it's more of 1 shot at time and we fulfill a complete series before starting a new one. However, I'm delaying more and researching more since the seminar.

Also, luckily, my ped is really ok with it. She just has me sign a waiver that I refused the immunizations and we move on. Guess I got lucky there.

Thanks for your support. I don't even know you and I want to hug you! ;) Ellisa

Ellisa, you stated:

"Shawmutt, the internet is FULL of information regarding reasons TO vaccinate your kids. And the information can be just as misleading as it's most by drug companies and the CDC, neither of which I feel have a vested interest in my children. And my kids are partially vaccinated. Just on my schedule and my terms."

What you are doing is attacking the "establishment" by basically saying "it comes from big government and big pharma, therefore it must be wrong". This is not true, and is pretty obvious to me.

"Big pharma" doesn't rake in profits from immunization--there is notoriously low return on investment for immunizations.

What exactly does "big government" gain from saying these shots are effective and safe if they weren't?

In short, you are trying to say that there are evil people in this world who only care about money and don't care about poisoning children--as if the people involved in making the drugs have no vested interest in humanity.

I'll tell you who does stand to gain. "Experts" like Mary Tocco who rake in big bucks with seminars and $24.95 DVDs. In fact, there is a whole site that addresses the b.s. this woman is spreading around--

Ellisa said...

Shawmutt - you feel you're educated about your opinion and I feel I'm educated about mine. We both believe the other side is full of holes. End of conversation.

Nice Job on your comments back to that guy. I may not completely agree with either side, but GEEZE! Everyone has the right to their own opinion and I'm proud of you for standing up for yours!!! You go girl!

shawmutt said...

Hey Ellisa, one more comment and then I'll leave your blog alone, I mean no disrespect. You can delete it if you want, but watch the movie in the link:

Mount Belly Mama said...

Shawmutt "means no disrespect?" That person needs to go take a flying leap of a cliff and stop telling you how to be a mother. Because that is what is happening here. It's not about vaccinations. It's about "being right" and making others wrong. In fact, everything Shawmutt said was so disrespectful and rude that he/she basically just built a case for delayed or non-vaccinations just by being rude. For people like me that are on the fence, this kind of attitude really does swing me the opposite way of them.

I think people need to remember that how they come across and how they present the information (not what is actually said) is enough to make or break their case. Shawmutt is clearly socially inept.

Ellisa, I applaud you for taking the time to do your own research and make your decisions. Most parents don't do ANY research at all. I am not saying I support one side or the other. But I will say that people need to stop telling us how to be parents.

I know you were excited and enthused after that seminar and it's not nice to have someone come in and basically tell you that you wasted your time or that you are still stupid and imply that you are a bad mother or hurting children everywhere.

Shawmutt, go take a flying leap off a cliff. You are doing the vaccine campaign a deservice with your high and mighty righteous attitude. You are only hurting the cause, not helping it.

You picked a bad day to mess with this mama.
