Autism and Vaccines - Eliminate the Variables

It seems like the easiest thing in the world to do would be to compare autism rates in vaccinated populations vs unvaccinated populations in the U.S.  There are about 18 million children in the U.S. under the age of 5.  Of those, the best guess is that about a million are not vaccinated (about 6%).  What percent of those children are autistic?  Why hasn't this been checked?  Their argument against doing this kind of study is it wouldn't be ethical to deprive anyone of vaccines.  But these people do not want vaccines.

The only other reason is that they know they would find little or no autism in the unvaccinated and that would wipe out billions of their dollars if word got out.  I believe the vaccine makers already know the answer, which is why they won't do the study.

The solution is for some organization to try to reach every family that does not get vaccinated and check if there are any cases of autism.  If there aren't, that would mean that the rates of autism in vaccinated children is an even higher percent than the current estimate.

Vaccines are one variable.  Other variables - herbicides/pesticides (like round-up/glyphosate) and other environmental neuro-toxins, like Naled that is used for spraying for Zika.

We do know this - the U.S. is, by far, the most vaccinated population (in number of vaccines being given to each individual), has the highest infant mortality rate, and is at the bottom of the list for developed nations in health and longevity.  And spends the most on health.  These statistics should tell you something!

Beware of MUFG Union Bank (Union Bank of California)

I try to post positive things, but occasionally a business does something so wrong, that it cries out to be reported, although there is a positive ending....well, a few.

If you Google "Union Bank," this is what comes up first:  "Union Bank personal banking services are exclusively designed to meet your financial needs, because you deserve more."

The reality is a bit different.  Here is my story regarding Union Bank.  I had my personal account with them for around 22 years, and also my business account (when I owned a vitamin store in Santa Monica) for several years.  During that time, never had a bad check, and my account was never overdrawn.  In other words, never a problem.

Recently, a friend of mine had been arrested and was in a federal detention center.  Her sister was in Australia at the time, and so the sister was not able to wire money to her in prison, so she asked if I would be willing to act as the go between - her sister would wire me the money, and I would wire it to my friend.  Of course, for her to wire me money, I needed to give her my account info.  I did, and everything went smoothly.  I received the money and transferred it to my friend, less the fees.

My friend, being in prison, didn't have access to her bank to get money when she would need it, for various things (retainer fees for an attorney, things she needed while at the detention center, etc.).  So she asked if she could send me money to hold for her, and distribute to others as she requested.  I said OK, and she sent me two checks to deposit into my account.  I went to Union Bank and deposited the two checks, was told they would be put on hold, as expected, and I thought that would be the end of it.  It wasn't!

A few days after depositing the funds, there was a Fed Ex envelope at my door.  Inside was a notice that Union Bank froze my account.  No prior mention that this might happen, no warning, no phone call, and no access to my own funds or her checks.  I had, at that time, three payments I had already sent, including one to my credit card for around 79 cents - which the bank didn't pay.  I was told to call the fraud investigation center of Union Bank, but was too late that day.  When I called, they said they suspected fraud.  I told them there was no fraud, explained that the checks had been sent to me by my friend's court appointed federal defender, that my friend was a public figure, in jail, etc., and who in their right mind would commit fraud while in jail?  When I told them I had given my account info to my friend's sister, and she had deposited money into my account, they were sure there was fraud.  If they think like this, how can anyone write a check, as all that info is printed right on the check?  If someone commits fraud by depositing money into my account, I'll take that fraud all the time!  I guess that tells you a little about this bank's logic (or lack of it).  Anyway, two weeks later, they realized there was no fraud and finally unfroze my account.  During that time, my friend asked if I could use some of the money to pay the balance of an order she had pending in China.  When I went to wire the money, they closed my account at Union Bank.  When I went to see the manager at the branch where my account was located, I was told my account had too many problems.  Union Bank made the problems when there weren't any....and never apologized!

They say "you deserve more," but after 22 years they closed my account.  I guess they are right - I did deserve more.  Now I'm at another bank getting more!  The other bank offers veterans free checks and a free safe deposit box.  The other good thing - my friend is now free and enjoying life again and the money she sent me has been returned to her and her attorney.

Calcium in the News Tonight (10/11/2016), and Some Related Comments

On the world news  tonight on NBC, they talked about the dangers of calcium supplements, how it could lead to heart problems.  If all you take is Calcium by itself, they are probably right.  And they mentioned how getting calcium from your food has the opposite effect and is good for your heart.  So far, so good, right?  But why the difference between food and supplements?  Food has other things in it that should always be taken with calcium, whether in supplement or food form.

I used to own a vitamin store in Santa Monica and have worked at several other vitamin stores.  People used to come in and tell me their doctor told them to get calcium.  I used to ask if that was calcium with magnesium and vitamin D.  No, they would say, my doctor just said calcium, sometimes asking for Citrical.  And that was the problem.

Tonight, I kept waiting for the news report to mention that calcium supplements should always be taken with magnesium, vitamin D and Vitamin K (I take a combination of magnesium oxide and citrate, and vitaminK1 with K2 - MK7).  Perhaps with zinc, too.  Never take a high dose calcium supplement by itself.  In addition to helping get the calcium where it belongs, vitamin D supports your immune system and has many other benefits.

The problem with the news is that it seldom gives complete information about supplements.  And never gives a balanced report about vaccinations.  I've never heard anything negative about vaccines, and yet they kill and injure thousands, perhaps a lot more.  And I seldom hear anything positive about supplements, although they have done wonders for my health. 

I will say this time and again - for your health, do your own research from independent sources (those not collecting money from the drug companies, which includes most doctors and the government.  Make sure the articles have references and check those.  

To your health!

Photography - What is the Fairest Way to Charge

The vast majority of photographers will charge a fee to photograph you.  It may be called a creation fee, a session fee, a sitting fee, etc.  Some will offer you a guarantee of some kind.  Maybe a free re-shoot if you are not happy with the results, maybe even a partial or full refund.

A short time ago, I read about a photographer who doesn't charge this initial fee, and I thought, wow, what a great idea.  If I start a photography business again, this is what I would do.  No charge for a consultation, no charge to actually shoot the photos.  If you are not happy, no worries about getting your money back.  Of course, if you do love the results, the final image is not cheap.  But you have nothing to lose, no risk, no obligation of any kind.  If the results are not exactly what you had wanted, and you don't order anything, you don't pay a penny.  And no hard feelings.  I had originally thought I would charge for the session ahead of time and offer a 100% money back guarantee or free re-shoot, or both, but like this idea better.  I think potential clients would, also.

One photographer sells these portraits for $10,000 or more.  If I did this, what would you get for that price?   Perhaps a 3 foot by 5 foot full length portrait, in a museum quality frame, with oil painting overlay - sort of a combination of photography and oil painting portrait.  And the single digital file that was used to produce it, retouched the same way as the finished product.  In short, a masterpiece that you loved and totally approved.

The photographer I would base my business on is this one (link).   Not exactly the same, but similar.  Different backdrop, different poses, but same quality.

Below are photos of one of my backdrops, plus a selfie in front of it.

Photos shot with Nikon D600 with 24-85mm lens at f5.6, 1/60, ISO 250 on 9/20/2016

If I start my photography business, don't worry, I won't charge $10,000 for a while, but I will use the oil coloring and beautiful frames, so it will cost a bit.

Vaccinations - Safe and Effective????

I'm sure you've seen the claims in the main stream media, or from your doctor or pharmacist, and in ads that vaccines are "safe and effective."  Please check the facts, because they tell a different story.  And IF they tell a different story, THEN you are either being lied to or those who are supposed to be educated aren't, and IF you are being lied to or those who are supposed to have the answers don't have the correct answers, THEN why would you trust them (media, doctors, etc.)?

What are some of the facts?
1.  The U.S. Supreme Count has said vaccines are "Unavoidably Unsafe."
2.  The measles vaccine has killed more people in the U.S. than measles has over the past 15 years.
3.  Mumps outbreaks on college campuses has occurred in fully vaccinated individuals in around 98% of the cases.
4.  Menningococcal vaccine is killing and injuring more than the disease it is supposed to prevent.
5.  At the recommended 3+ doses of pertussis, those who received those doses in 2014 had more than 5x the number of cases of pertussis than those who received no vaccine (see CDC chart here).
6.  Four vaccines were recently tested for Glyphosate, and herbicide, and those vaccines contained glyphosate - which is directly injected into your body when getting those vaccines.
7.  With all the miraculous effects they claim for vaccines, plus all the money spent on medicine and health care in the U.S., the U.S. should have the best statistics for longevity, health, and infant mortality, wouldn't you think?  Not only does it not have the best, it is actually one of the worst of all developed nations, ranking 30th or lower in all those categories.

I could go on, but I think I've made my point.  My best advice is to do your research from independent sources.  To help you, here are some past blogs with links to various sources, herehere, and here (with some charts on infant mortality and vaccinated vs non vaccinated German study).

Please make informed choices and learn the truth - it may save your life or your child's life and health.  Don't believe me - do your research!  That's what I did.

Zika, Vaccines, Pesticides

This is just a brief summary of things that I have found and read about Zika and Microcephaly.  But first, does (or can) Zika cause Microcephaly?  I can't answer that, but I can say do not get your opinion on this from the media, the CDC, the drug companies, or those who stand to make a profit from this.  You must do your own independent research and find the facts.

What are some of the facts I have found?
1.  Before Zika ever came to the U.S., there were 25,000 cases of microcephaly a year in this country.
2.  In Colombia, where they have Zika and the mosquito, no cases of microcephaly.
3.  In Brazil, pregnant women get vaccinated with vaccines containing known neurotoxic ingredients.
4.  In Brazil, they heavily spray pesticides, herbacides, and larvacides containing neurotoxins.
5.  I just read they are now vaccinating pregnant women in the U.S. and also spraying Naled, which contains what?  Neurotoxins.  In high enough amounts it can be deadly to people.

To me at least, common sense and logic from the above statements would lead to a conclusion that microcephaly is probably being caused by vaccines and environmental toxins (pesticides, herbicides, larvacides) or a combination of these.  And Zika is the scapegoat.

The other logical thing I see happening is that they (media, government, etc.) will now be able to blame Zika for whatever problems might be caused by vaccines and spraying, while at the same time scaring people into lining up for the vaccine when it becomes available.  So instead of doing what they should do - suspend spraying and vaccinating pregnant women so they can determine if this is the problem, and find if this might be a definitive solution, they'll probably compound the problem with even more neurotoxic substances in the new vaccine.

Unfortunately, I believe their game plan is to make sure pregnant women are exposed to all three things - Zika, vaccines, and spraying - and then put all the blame on Zika.  And with the media repeating this mantra over and over and over, most people will believe it.  Why?  Because they will not do the independent research, even when the lives and health of their children depend on it.  I wish they would prove me wrong.

As I learned a long time ago in a photography class - eliminate the variables!  There are three here - Zika, Vaccines, Spraying.  To find what is causing what, you have to eliminate two at a time, and then see if the third one causes problems.  You MUST ask yourself, why aren't they doing that?  Only one answer I can think of - they want to blame Zika, because that will be a moneymaker.  Vaccines and spraying are moneymakers - so they get to keep those.

A final word - the above are only my opinions, but I would be a lot more in fear of the media, government, CDC, drug companies, etc., then I would be in fear of Zika.

Freedom, Vaccines, and Health

If you look up the definition of Freedom, you will find these two things, among many others:  1.  The power, or right, to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint; 2.  the state of not being subject to or affected by (a particular undesirable thing).

Unfortunately, there are two freedoms we are losing or have lost.  In the case of supplements, for example, you cannot say that a particular supplement will heal you or cure you from any affliction, even if the science and anecdotal evidence has shown that it does.  And when vaccines are made mandatory, they violate definition one and two above and we are no longer free in America - you will have lost your FREEDOM.  It doesn't matter if you are Pro-vaccine, Anti-vaccine, or somewhere in the middle - it's not about pro or anti vaccine, it is about Freedom.  Once you lose the freedom to decide what toxins can be injected into your body, what other freedoms may go?  It doesn't matter to me if you want to get vaccinated or not - I hope you will choose after becoming fully informed of the dangers and benefits by researching from independent sources (from those who have nothing to gain one way or the other).  I have done several hundred hours of research and have come to my conclusion, and have posted many links to independent sites from immunologists, doctors, scientists, and researchers, among others, including sites to people whose children have been adversely affected by vaccines, up to and including death.  If a mandated medical procedure (experiment) can cause permanent injury or loss of life to you or your loved ones, it sure seems like that can be categorized as a loss of Freedom.

If you are one of those who believe vaccines are for the greatest good, please read the Link to this article about the Greatest Good.  If everything was defined by the greatest good, why aren't we hearing about mandatory healthy nutrition, about the benefits of supplements for the immune system, about eliminating all the environmental toxins, or about reforming the medical profession (which is either the first or third leading cause of death in the U.S. - see this Link for death statistics.), etc.

Speaking of the greatest good - let's look at the Pertussis (Whooping Cough) vaccine.  They are advertising it on TV, and mandating it in California (and other places) for children.  But if you go to the CDC site, you can see that those who get the recommended series of vaccines for Pertussis get Pertussis about 4.5 times more than non vaccinated children.  I wonder how they explain that increasing Pertussis by 450% is for the greater good?  Here's the chart for 2013 (and 2014 which is even worse).  Look at the bottom right chart.  By signing the vaccine law, the governor of California has mandated that there will be more cases of Pertussis?  That's why the CDC chart says.  For Mumps, almost everyone who has been getting that has been vaccinated for that - I don't have the exact figure offhand, but somewhere around 87% if I remember.  Let's not forget, besides increasing the likelihood of getting the disease, you also open yourself to the side effects.

About vaccines and autism - you should really listen to District Attorney Nico LaHood and wife Davida tell the story of their son and daughter's vaccine injury - He is the criminal district attorney in San Antonio, TX.  We need more people like him - he knows how to research and investigate.

Some more links to read or listen to:
The Effect of Aluminum in Vaccines on Humans | Chris Shaw, PhD
World Health Organization Publishes Strategies For EU Healthcare Professionals To Convince Vaccine Deniers Vaccines Are Safe - if they were safe, no one would need convincing.  In fact, if they were safe and effective, people would be lining up, and the vaccine makers would have no problem with liability.  But even the Supreme Court of the U.S. has called them Unavoidably Unsafe.  And released the makers from any liability.  SAFE?  You decide.  If you decide they are not safe, then you know you are being lied to by the vaccine makers, the medical profession, the media, and the government.  So you really need to do your research (again, from independent sources) and stop listening to those who tell you they are safe.

You can start by looking at the vaccine inserts - the ones in the vaccine box - the ones that list all the side effects, safety studies (well, there probably aren't any of those), and all the ingredients.  And then some of the links I've posted here and on past blog posts.
