Swine flu jab linked to sleep
disorder: Fears one million
children received jab that can
increase risk of narcolepsy

Daily Mail [UK], by Jenny Hope

Original Article

Almost a million children were given a swine flu jab which put them at increased risk of the sleep disorder narcolepsy, say scientists. New research shows the Pandemrix vaccine carries a 14-fold extra risk of triggering narcolepsy, in which sufferers can fall asleep suddenly and unexpectedly. For every 55,000 doses delivered, it is estimated around one child developed the condition. Pandemrix was the main vaccine used in the UK during the swine flu pandemic three years ago. It was given to six million people in high-risk groups, including children and those with conditions such as diabetes, heart disease

We know the benefits of vaccines but we have to ask what the risks are too? I want to know why there has been a 100 increase in autism in the past few decades? Children in the USA receive 40 vaccinations by age 4. I am not saying to return to the dark ages but something awful is happening to our children!

#3, When I was a brand new mom, I took my son in for his first doctor visit. I think he was about six days old. The doctor told me they were going to give him his inoculations and I was a little surprised, not expecting that until he was a few months old. I said, ´You mean the rubella and polio?´ She nodded and proceeded to give my son two or three injections, using both his legs. When she was finished she told me that he would probably have some redness and swelling but if it didn´t get better in a day or so to call the office. That was when I found out that they had given him 23 different vaccinations.


That was ´normal´ twelve years ago.

Yawn. You are pelted with infinitely more challenges to your immune system every day when you walk out the door than you receive from childhood vaccines.
And those who still cling to the vaccine-autism myth are just like those who only get their information from single sources such as the Huffington Post. If the evidence doesn´t support their prejudices or worldview, then it must be some sort of conspiracy and therefore must be dismissed as not credible.
Unfortunately, there will NEVER be enough evidence to satisfy those who have become convinced by the emotional power of anecdotes supported by years of cherry-picked (and non-reproducible) junk science. But whatever makes you feel better I guess.
But hey, the "John Edwards" of the world continue to be grateful for the support.

Let´s all hyperventilate about a 1 in 55,000 chance of narcolepsy in exchange for resistance to a disease that kills people.

P.S. An increase in autism, or an increase in the DIAGNOSIS of autism, or some combination of the two?

Yeah Yeah...and Paul Offit said that you could have 100,000 vaccines at once and you would be perfectly fine. Then he backed it up to 10,000.

Tell you what Offit, offer YOURSELF up as the sacrificial lamb and prove it.

Until then, my kids are NOT getting the needle.

#7, my daughter is a special ed teacher. The diagnosis of autism is because of pretty severe behavior problems. I don´t think it´s diagnosed lightly.

Some people don´t understand immunology unfortunately. There is always a risk that 1-2% of the people who are immunized will have an adverse reaction--anything from minor site reactions like swelling to death. This 1-2% incident rate is why the government has fully indemnified the vaccine makers from all claims (what other medicine or practice is so indemnified?). There is a fund for those harmed, paid by the federal government for those injured by immunizations.

I fall on the side of "reasonable" vaccinations, but think there are way too many at this point that do damage to the immune system when given all at once and at a young age--before the immune system has fully developed in a child.
The idea that we are exposed to a lot more pathogens/bugs a day is a mostly weak argument. For the most part, what we are exposed to daily, we already have an immunity too as we have been exposed long term to them. It is the rare bug that we had no real exposure previously to or a strong one that overwhelms our immune system and causes a reaction. In the case of some of the immunizations, some expose a child (with a still developing immune system) to 40+ "bugs" that they have never been exposed to all at once. The immune system has to go on overload to handle that many new and varying bugs so no wonder there are reactions in some who just do not have the resources to handle it.

Again, I don´t think all immunizations are bad, but I think the amount and timing we are using right now is not the best or most healthy design and parents are right to be leery of how many and when they have their child immunized.

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

Louisville, Ky. — Could climate change mean paying more for your morning cup of coffee? One climate panel says "yes." According to the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC), pests, rising heat and extreme temperatures resulting from climate change may actually impact the supply of coffee. The news has those in the coffee industry worried. "I am very concerned," said Mauricio Galindo, head of International Coffee Organization. "I would say climate change is the most serious threat to the sustainability of the coffee supply chain right now." The IPCC says that a temperature rise of just 2 to 2.5 centigrades

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
