Japan Leads the Way: No Vaccine Mandates and No MMR Vaccine = Healthier Children

Baby monkeys that were given vaccines according to the U.S. vaccination schedule had abnormalities in the region of the brain affecting social and emotional development.


Infants who received vaccines containing mercury had significantly increased odds of being diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.

 

Infants who received vaccines containing mercury developed speech disorders, sleep disorders and autism. [Unpublished study sponsored by the CDC.]

 

Boys who received hepatitis B vaccines containing mercury were 3 times more likely than unvaccinated boys to develop autism.

 

Autism, mental retardation, and speech disorders were significantly more common in children who received DTaP vaccines with thimerosal.

 

Autism, mental retardation and personality disorders occurred more often in children who received vaccines with thimerosal.

 

Rates of autism and mental retardation were 6 times higher in children who received DTaP vaccines with thimerosal.

 

There is a significant relationship between regressive autism spectrum disorders and the amount of mercury children received from thimerosal-containing vaccines.

 

A CDC-sponsored database shows significant links between thimerosal in vaccines and neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism and attention deficit disorder (ADD).

 

Young mice and rats injected with thimerosal (mercury) had behavioral impairments characteristic of autistic children.

 

Aluminum in vaccines may be linked to autism spectrum disorders.

Strategic implications of counter-geoengineering: Clash or cooperation?
Solar geoengineering has received increasing attention as an option to temporarily stabilize global temperatures. A key concern is that heterogeneous preferences over the optimal amount of cooling combined with low deployment costs may allow the country with the strongest incentive for cooling, the so-called free-driver, to impose a substantial externality on the rest of the world.

Odd that its prediction of a near miss coincides with the effective date global agencies and other groups promoting some catastrophe in 2030 and are warning us about but won't actually give a definitive reason other than severe 'climate change' will kill us off. Well a 340m rock which is roughly four football fields in diameter hitting the planet at 2.7 miles per second will make a massive crater but most importantly kick up enough debris to change the climate with a nuclear winter effect. A football field size rock is estimated to destroy an entire city and radiate an 8.0 quake out to 1000 miles away with climate changing debris so one four times as large would be near an extinction level event as far as fragile land life would be concerned. It could be even worse if say it bulls eyes a major fault line or yellowstone itself which would most likely trigger an eruption which would certainly seal the deal on everyone dying. An ocean hit would be something similar to the 2012 movie on coastal regions but the real damage would be the salt rains it would produce as trillions of gallons of seawater is vaporized and seeded around the planet by the jet streams.

This computer changed the world—and you’ve never heard about it
Your dishwasher has more brain power than the computer that flew the Apollo astronauts to the Moon but don’t let your dishwasher take control of your spaceship anytime soon. That’s not a measure of how basic the Apollo computers were, but rather how much the engineers and programmers in the 1960s were able to do with the modest computing power that was available to them.

Last year the SyFy channel aired a pilot about a generation ship on a 100 year trip to a new world to be colonized. That show brought up something I'd never thought about but could be an issue in real life. The people who first set out on the voyage volunteered so no problem there and their grandchildren will be alive to colonize the new world so no problem there either The problem is with the middle generation who did not volunteer, who will not live long enough to see the new world and who are not allowed to have self-determination.  Also, in order for a generation ship to succeed, it would have to be very authoritarian or totalitarian which would translate to the new world when they arrive. Is that the kind of new world humanity wants?

 

.

To be fair, no child gets to choose the circumstance of their birth.  Whether it's the children of the hunter gathering tribes that crossed a land bridge from Asia to North America, or the kids of folks on the Mayflower - the kids get to listen to how much better things were in the old country. 

But for the kids themselves - the ship or 'new land' is all they know.  It's 'home'. 

So I would not worry too much about the middle generation kids.
