A 2005 novel by Jonathan Safran Foer
Author of a dozen books, including the bestselling Timeless Secrets of Rejuvenation and Health and Cancer is Not a Disease, Andreas Moritz takes on yet another controversial subject, this time to expose the Vaccine Myth. In Vaccine-nation, Moritz unravels … see full wiki
The author's main point is that vaccines can
precipitate toxic overloads, inflammation and
other unintended side effects which can be more
dangerous than the disease to be prevented.
Vaccines are said to contain dangerous ingredients
like formaldehyde, anti-freeze agents and antibodies.
In addition, vaccines can cause genetic switches to
go on or off, according to the author.
These findings beg for the need to consider
replacing vaccine additives which are inorganically
based with ones that derive from natural substances
which are organically based.
The author points out that vaccinated children
have more asthma,allergies, ear infections, apnea,
tonsillitis and hyperactivity. Interestingly,
aboriginals cut their skin and expose it to dirt
to acquire a natural immunity against dangerous toxins.
And so, what does a parent do if a child isn't
vaccinated? The author doesn't make this clear.
In my own experience, check with a practitioner of Alternative
or Complementary Medicine. There is a National Center
for Complementary or Alternative Medicine of
the National Institutes of Health. Due to the plethora
of non-conventional medicinal protocols,
the NIH has created a National Center for
Complementary or Alternative Medicine to advise
In this reviewer's experience, there are important
health tonics which benefit children like acidophilus
which promotes good bacteria, Vitamin C, Quercitin
and other antioxidants. These are potential alternatives
to vaccination if parents listen to the author and don't
vaccinate their children due to the inorganic additives.
The author provides advice on what to take after
utilizing antibiotic drugs. "If you do choose to employ
antibiotic drugs, bear in mind that they interfere with
normal digestion by killing off beneficial colon bacteria.
These are the very bacteria that make vitamin K,
the B-vitamins cobalamin and biotin, help us digest
many plant and dairy foods, strengthen the immune
system, and repress the overgrowth of pathogenic
After antibiotic therapy, all persons should take yogurt
and an acidophillus supplement for a month or two to
help restore a normal, healthy bowel environment.
I have found shamefully few doctors who tell
this to their patients, said the author. " 1)

A child born with virtually no immune system receives
vaccines loaded with toxins and the result can trigger
disease processes that are far worse than the illness
to be prevented by the vaccine, according to the author.
The author points out that there are lower infection
rates due to improved sanitation, nutrition and living conditions-
not vaccinations per se.
Another problem , according to the author, is that vaccine potency
can be increased via adjuvants. These adjuvants increase
potency tremendously so that a much smaller amount of the vaccine
can have the same or similar effect.
"Once this toxic sludge is injected directly into the blood,
it will inevitably make its way into the brain, spleen,
kidneys, liver, joint fluids, blood vessel walls,
lymph vessels and connective tissues of intestines,
lungs, breasts and other parts, according to the author."
The author explains how large scale vaccinations in
poorer countries have had the unintended effect of
increased infertility. On the other hand, snake venom
has been known to induce immunity against future
rattlesnake bites. The immunity is caused by the
body generating anti-serum to neutralize the
toxic effects of the snake venum. The achieved cellular
immunity protects the body against future exposure to
the same toxin.
This is true unless the degree of exposure greatly
exceeds the bodily detoxification and compensation
ability . So, a carefully constructed vaccine can
have a beneficial outcome as demonstrated by the snake
venum application provided by the author. The reader
should understand that vaccine protocols aren't universally bad.
Overall, the book mentions important implications for
current and future vaccination programs . There is a need
to search for alternatives to vaccines loaded with
toxins and inorganic chemical combinations which could
confound natural bodily processes. The author doesn't
provide too much detail on viable vaccination
The author also suggests a possible alteration of
DNA switching sequences. The presentation raises enough
questions to revisit the scientific control group design
which proves or disproves the efficacy of individual
vaccination programs devoid of harmful side effects
or unintended health consequences.
Patients should discuss the efficacy of individual vaccines
and alternatives with their personal physicians or
health practitioner(s) in the experience of the reviewer .
Always ask the health practitioner for a list of ingredients
or additives for the vaccine you are considering.
This information should be readily
available to all patients. Discuss practical
alternatives and contraindications for any vaccine
considered by you.
Dr. Andreas Moritz is a practitioner of Ayurvedic Medicine.
Ayurvedic medicine (also called Ayurveda) is one of
the world's oldest medical systems. It originated in India
and has evolved there over thousands of years. In the United States,
Ayurvedic medicine is considered a CAM whole medical system.
This complete system of theory and practice has
evolved over time in different cultures and apart
from conventional medicine. Examples of whole medical
systems include traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine,
homeopathy, and naturopathy. Many therapies used in Ayurvedic
medicine are also used on their own as CAM-for example, herbs,
massage, and specialized diets. 3)
The book has a very extensive resource and reference
section including citations from the following:
o pediatrics applications
o National Institutes of Health
o Dr. Jonas Salk Hearings
o Natural News
o Soil and Health.org and many others
