Support a study of vaccinated vs. un-vaccinated children

ACTION ALERT

 

Support a study of vaccinated vs. un-vaccinated children

 

Proponents of vaccines claim that they save lives and protect children’s health. Yet the most basic of comparisons between unvaccinated children and vaccinated children has never been done. The government has never conducted a single study looking at the overall health of a vaccinated vs. an unvaccinated population.

 

Now we have a chance to fight for the science needed to make truly informed decisions about vaccines. U.S. Representative Bill Posey has introduced a bill calling for a comprehensive study comparing the health outcomes in vaccinated populations versus unvaccinated populations in the United States.

 

The Weston A. Price Foundation believes such a study is long overdue. Americans are seeing an explosion in chronic disease and disability in our children including ADHD and learning disabilities, asthma, allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, juvenile diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, seizures, encephalitis (brain swelling), and autism.

 

Could some of this be connected to the fact that the vaccine schedule has tripled since the 1980’s, and children now receive 69 doses of 16 vaccines?

 

A recent independent pilot study showed that unvaccinated children have lower incidences of allergies and neurodevelopmental disorders than vaccinated children:

http://www.cmsri.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/MawsonStudyHealthOutcomes5.8.2017.pdf

 

We need a larger, comprehensive study, recognized by the U.S. government.   Representative Posey has been arguing for such a study for years; check out this video of a 2012 hearing, in which he confronts a CDC official about the CDC’s failure to study vaccinated vs. un-vaccinated outcomes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNWTOmEi_6A.

 

If H.R. 3615 passes, the study could prove a turning point for vaccine policy in our country – and the future of our children. Please take a few moments to urge your U.S. Representative to support H.R. 3615!

 

 

TAKE ACTION

 

ACTION #1:

 

Contact your U.S. Representative and urge them to SUPPORT H.R. 3615. You can find out who represents you at: www.house.gov/representatives/find/ or by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121.

 

Phone calls have a greater impact than emails. You can leave a very short message (“I urge my Representative to support H.R. 3615) or ask to speak to the staffer who handles health issues, and have a conversation to increase your impact. Be clear and concise about why this issue matters to you and/or the people in your community. You can use some of the talking points below to help you get your thoughts in order.

 

If you do use email, be sure to use a clear subject line (“Support HR 3615”), and keep it short, but personal.

 

 

ACTION #2:

 

Does this issue REALLY matter to you? Nothing has a greater impact than meeting with your legislator or their staff face-to-face! And now is a great time, because Congress is recessed and the Reps are back in their home districts – near you.

 

Find out who your Rep is at www.house.gov/representatives/find/ and then click on their name to visit their website. Under Contact, they will have information for both their DC and their district offices – contact the district office nearest you and ask about meeting. If the Rep’s schedule is already packed, say that you’d be happy to meet with the staff – that truly does make a difference!

 

Once you have a meeting scheduled, you can contact WAPF for more tips on how to make it as effective and impactful as possible: info@westonaprice.org

 

 

ACTION #3:

 

Email Representative Bill Posey and thank him for his brave introduction of H.R. 3615. https://posey.house.gov/forms/writeyourrep/

 

 

 

TALKING POINTS & MORE INFORMATION

 

View the bill here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/3615

 

 

  • We need a study that evaluates the health outcomes among children who have and have not been vaccinated according to the federally recommended vaccine schedule.

 

  • Even though America has one of the highest child vaccination rates in the world and spends the most on health care, our children are among the sickest in the developed world, crippled by chronic disease and disability including; ADHD and learning disabilities, asthma, allergies, inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, juvenile diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, seizures, encephalitis (brain swelling), and autism. A vaccinated vs. un-vaccinated study would provide vital information to help improve the wellbeing of our children.

 

 

  • A recent study by the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI) shows cause for concern. This study found children 6-12 years old were more likely to be diagnosed with pneumonia, otitis media, allergies and neurodevelopmental disorders if they were vaccinated.

 

http://www.cmsri.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/MawsonStudyHealthOutcomes5.8.2017.pdf

 

This study concluded that vaccination coupled with preterm birth was associated with increasing odds of an NDD (defined as a learning disability, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.)

http://www.cmsri.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/MawsonStudyPretermBirth5.8.2017.pdf

 

Excellent article on the first study: http://info.cmsri.org/the-driven-researcher-blog/vaccinated-vs.-unvaccinated-guess-who-is-sicker?utm_campaign=Driven%20Researcher%20Subscription&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=51549520&_hsenc=p2ANqtz–XHYNDgRo7iqTWz3nnF5tFFMOdDqbQ7p_EOiMVTMi20XWgxDMMwdnk3jF2I3IMqDFS9fyucHnXy0k_Ix36UjLPgMxLvwiW9jnH0kIm_w26jGa-R48&_hsmi=51549520

August 2017: From The Editor

Hi all,

Beautiful yellow, raw, grass-fed butter

Beautiful yellow, raw, grass-fed butter, made for our July potluck by one of our local participants.

We have events coming up!


Here are some photos of our last potluck:

 We liked Natural Grocers, and will be returning there in for our potluck in August.

New Farm in Creswell: Lucky Ladies Farm

Lucky Ladies FarmHi, my name is Kristin and I’m a new farmer in Creswell. I have shares of pork available this fall that I thought might be of special interest to some of your members. These are rotationally pastured, heritage breed pigs being fed a corn and soy free diet (not certified organic, but locally sourced non-GMO grains and legumes, as well as goat whey and apples). There are only a few shares left but I would love if this offer could be passed on, as convenient for you.

Name: Kristin
Email: kristineppspdx@gmail.com

Three half shares available of pastured Gloucester Old Spot/Large Black pigs. The Livestock Conservancy lists both breeds as threatened, despite their hardiness and excellent pork quality. Besides pasture, their diet has been supplemented with fermented grain and field peas (corn/soy/GMO free), apples, and goat milk and whey.

They should weigh 250-300lbs by October. I am asking $3.00/lb hanging weight, which is the weight after slaughter but before butchering; it’s about 72% of the live weight, so half of a 300lb hog would be about 108lbs hanging weight. Some more weight is lost during the butchering process, depending on what cuts a person chooses. If someone wants all sausage or boneless cuts and doesn’t want any of the fat or bones or organs, they would get less back than if they want all bone-in cuts and want all the fat for making lard. A good average is that 80% of the hanging weight is returned as cuts, so about 86.4lbs for a half share.

At $3.00/lb hanging weight, a share buyer would pay me about $324 for the half pig. State law requires that the butcher is paid separately. I am using Farmer’s Helper for an on-farm kill (no stressful truck ride for the pigs!); they charge .59/lb for the cutting and packaging, and a $55 kill fee, so for the half pig it would be around $90 to the butcher. Smoking and curing adds more to that – if you wanted your bacon and ham cured instead of getting them fresh, that could add another $20 or so.

So, altogether, $324 to me and $110 to the butcher is $434 for around 86.4lbs of pork, coming out to about $5.02/lb for what you take home.

Min Kim
has been a domestic engineer for the past twenty-two years.  Upon learning about traditional foods and the Weston A. Price Foundation five years ago, she pledged to her family that food would taste better than what they were used to.  This led her to learn and perfect a sourdough bread technique that not only is nourishing and kind to the body, but also is flavorful without being overly sour, and has a light and airy texture.  She now provides real sourdough bread to local families and also teaches classes on how to make this bread at home.

July 28: DVD Showing – The PHO (Partially Hydrogenated Oils) Public Health Disaster– the Complete Story

The PHO (Partially Hydrogenated Oils) Public Health Disaster– the Complete Story

by Dr. Gerald McNeill, 75 min.

July 28, 2017

DVD begins at 6:30 PM

Location:

Market of Choice
67 West 29th Ave
Eugene, OR 97405
(Upstairs in the Community Room)

Cost:

Free.  Donations encouraged.

Description: 

About 50 years ago, a glut of soybean in the U.S. lead to the introduction of a new chemical process: “partially hydrogenated oils” (PHO). The process converts liquid oils into semi-solid shortenings that have the same texture as butter and other animal fats. The process is extremely versatile and many new textures were created, displacing butter and leading to a golden age in the baking and snack food industries.

Eventually, nutrition science discovered that the main fat in PHO, trans fat, was ten times worse than saturated fat. On June 18th 2015 the FDA announced that PHO were no longer GRAS (generally recognized as safe). This presentation will discuss the events leading to the adoption of PHO, to a major decline in public health and finally a recovery with the elimination of trans fat from the food supply.

Dr. Gerald McNeill is currently vice president of research and development of IOI Loders Croklaan, with responsibility for the development of trans-fat free, palm oil-based solutions for North America. Joining IOI Loders Croklaan from Unilever Research UK, he led a team to develop enzyme-based processes for the modification of fats and oils, and initiated a discovery program for the development of nutritional lipids. Prior to Unilever, Dr. McNeill carried out various aspects of fats and oils research at public research institutions including the National Dairy Research Centre in Ireland, USDA ARS in Philadelphia, Hanover University in Germany and Nagoya University in Japan. Dr. McNeill took his doctoral degree in biochemistry at Galway University, Ireland.

June Potluck In Review

We had a nice potluck this week. I got there late so I missed the beginning. But there was still plenty of great food.


On my plate is: lamb meatloaf, deviled eggs, pickled cucumber, cole slaw, green salad with strawberries and homemade dressing, two kinds of pate’, fermented veggies, tomato and feta cheese salad and dessert.

After filling up our plates Dr Krautsack gave a presentation on Cholesterol (hint, it’s not the evil substance drug manufacturers would have you believe) and how chiropractic supports nutrition.

We hope you’ll join us for our next event.

June 23: DVD Showing – Missing Nutrients in Modern Food

Dirt Poor, Badly Bread and Improperly Prepared: Missing Nutrients in Modern Food

by John Moody

Friday, June 23, 2017

Description: 

Changing to traditional foods is about more than just WHAT foods we eat, but HOW they are raised and prepared. Since the time of our grandparents and great-grandparents, foods have lost significant amounts of their nutritional value–anywhere from one third to three quarters of their vitamin and mineral content or more! This talk will explore the depth of these nutritional losses, their causes, and the ways we get truly paleo (nutrient-dense) foods back on our plates.

Victory for Auzure Standard Farm

Thanks to all the many people who took time to write or call in a response to Sherman County’s plans to spray Azure Farm, the county weed board received 40,000 emails! They have backed off the plan to spray the organic farm with toxic herbicides.

http://www.jeffereyjaxen.com/blog/victory-sherman-county-backs-down-after-receiving-40000-emails-organic-azure-farms-saved

We just went through the hearing with the county commission and the weed board and I want to thank all you loyal customers for giving your opinion. For spreading the word far and wide. Not only did it spread the word far and wide about this but it opened up a whole new level of debate about organic agriculture, organic farming…I think it’s done wonderful things. It’s given opportunity for people to hear about the benefits of organic agriculture – and healthy food – that have never had it before. Thank you so much. I will say that even thought here in the county there was lively debate, the level heads have prevailed. The county commission has now agreed to work with us on a proper weed plan.
