There is a deadly disease that will affect approximately 10,000 children under the age of 15 this year. It will kill approximately 1,350 children under the age of 15 this year. Rates of this disease in children have been on the rise in the past few decades. This death rate is down from 2500 in 1998. Doctors say the cause is unknown. According to the CDC, this is the second leading cause of death in children ages 5-14 after accidents and unintentional injuries.
Getting concerned? What is this disease?
How do childhood cancer deaths compare to other causes of death for children?
In 2011, 1,545 children died from abuse and neglect, just a little higher than the American Cancer Society’s projections for this year. (See page 54 of this document for exact reference.)
Remember the post on measles? Before the MMR vaccine, 500 individuals died every year from measles complications.
In 2010, there were 1,790 firearm homicides of children ages 0-19. (A total of 2,808 total homicides, just a little over the 1998 cancer death rate for children.)
In 2010, there were 749 firearm suicides of children ages 0-19. (A total of 1,933 suicides.)
How about children being left in hot cars? That’s a popular topic right now. In 2013 there were 44 children who died from being left in a hot car. Since 1998, there have been a total of 629 vehicular heat stroke deaths among children.
Also take note that the National Cancer Institute has different projections than the American Cancer Society’s more conservative numbers, which include children ages 1-19. The National Cancer Institute projects that in 2014 15,780 children will develop cancer and 1,960 will die. Also take note that survival rates listed for cancer are only for five years after treatment.
So cancer is a significant cause of mortality in children. But guess what kinds of cancers are most common in children?
Leukemia (cancer that starts in blood forming tissue such as bone marrow and spreads through the blood stream), brain and central nervous system tumors, lymphoma (cancer of the immune system), rhabdomyosarcoma (cancer of the soft tissue in the muscle), neuroblastoma (cancer in the nerve cells, which mostly affects infants and children), Wilms tumor (cancer that starts with malignant tumors in the kidneys and then spreads to the lungs, liver or lymph nodes and usually affects children under 5 years old), bone cancer and gonadal and germ cell cancers are the most common types of cancer seen in children ages 0-19.
What could be causing these cancers? While we don’t have any definitive answers at the moment, consider the following:
- Potassium dibasic phosphate is an excipient in MMR Pro Quad. PDP is known to cause tumors and damage to the kidneys. (Refer to my post on MMR for links.) Children receive two doses of the MMR vaccine during the first five years of their life, the same time frame that most cases of Wilms tumor occur.
- From studying provocative polio, scientists know that vaccination can allow viruses and bacteria easy access to nerve channels.
- Many vaccines contain chemicals like beta propiolactone (Which has been found to cause tumors in test animals when injected beneath the skin), formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, and calcium chloride which is known to cause both genetic mutations and tumors. For a full list of vaccines with these and other excipients, visit the CDC’s list here. Formaldehyde has been linked to increased rates of leukemia in people who were exposed to it in the workplace.
- Simian Virus 40 has been found in bone and brain tumors. (Please see Figure 2 for mention of bone tumors and the second to last paragraph under “History of SV-40” for mention of an increased incidence in brain tumors of children whose mothers received the inactivated polio virus while pregnant. This should give pregnant women pause before getting a flu vaccine.) Since the polio vaccine was and continues to be cultured in African Green Monkey tissues, it has been cited as the most likely culprit for the spread of the virus. In fact, the CDC has acknowledged other animal viruses are present in vaccines, like pig viruses in the rotavirus vaccines. They just say that these viruses are not known to cause any disease in humans.
- Most vaccines are administered through intramuscular injection and contain carcinogens. This should be investigated as a contributing factor to rhabdomysarcoma.
- Aluminum hydroxide is in some Hep B shots and research has shown that it may affect the blood, bones and liver.
- Pertussis shots contain 2-phenoxyethanol, chemical which is known to depress the central nervous system. Could this be linked to cancers of the nervous system like neuroblastoma?
- Lymphoma is a cancer of the immune system. Is it simply coincidence that children receive several shots meant to supposedly stimulate their immune systems?
So it may be wise to ask yourself if you think that we can really inject our children and ourselves with animal viruses and carcinogens and expect only good health to result.
