Record Protests Stall NJ Bill Seeking To Remove Religious Exemption The New Jersey bill seeking to remove religious exemptions to vaccination failed to get enough votes as the 2019 legislative session came to a close. A previous week of record protests against the bill at New Jersey’s state house spilled into Monday as a crowd of thousands swelled outside the building. Sustained chanting, bullhorns and sirens from protesters could be heard inside both Assembly and Senate hearings throughout the day. In a bipartisan effort, several members of the New Jersey legislature spoke with the protesters outside to signal solidity in the efforts to defeat the bill. Republican Senator Mike Testa addressed the crowd on two separate occasions “This [bill] isn’t about public health. We know that now.” New Jersey Assemblyman Jamal Holley stated,
“Anytime we have an elected official who puts forth legislation to separate us, we separate them out. You [addressing the protesters] are setting a tone like no other I have seen in the history of my whole entire political career.”
Bill to eliminate religion as reason not to vaccinate kids dies after failing to win support Religion will remain a valid excuse for children to bypass vaccination laws in New Jersey — at least for now — after state lawmakers Monday failed a second time to muster enough support to pass a controversial bill that would have repealed the option that thousands of the state’s families used last year. With hundreds of parents once again staging a high-decibel protest outside the Statehouse in Trenton, a planned vote on the latest version of the legislation was called off because leaders in the state Senate fell one vote short on the last day of New Jersey’s two-year legislative session. But the bill’s Democratic sponsors vowed that the fight to repeal the religious exemption isn’t over. They said they will reintroduce the measure Tuesday, when a new legislative session begins at noon. The public hearing and voting process, however, will have to start over.
Protests — whether in Trenton, Tehran or Hong Kong — are packed with power and pride While I fundamentally disagree with everything the folks who braved the cold in Trenton on Thursday to loudly protest a bill that would limit vaccine exemptions for religious reasons were saying, I will go to the wall and with every breath and fiber of my being defend their right to say it. Indeed, though I believe them to be misguided, and even reckless in their opposition to legislation that seeks nothing more than to safeguard our collective public health, who cannot be impressed by these advocates’ determination to stand in the winter chill, voice their position, and to never lose their passion. Certainly, you can go online and view the videos, and listen to the chants, or you can simply relish the description, laid out wonderfully by Trenton Bureau writer Ashley Balcerzak, of this celebration of a nation’s long tradition of non-violent protest: “They blew whistles and banged cowbells in a deafening roar outside the Senate chamber, and at dinnertime, people went around passing out free turkey sandwiches.” These same words might have described a similar scene on the streets of Paterson during the fabled Paterson Silk Strike of 1913.
New York Senate Bill 7214 Requires health care providers to provide patients with a list of ingredients contained in vaccines and information relating to vaccine safety, including medical exemptions for school age children.
Bills look to ease vaccine requirements in W.Va. Multiple bills have already been introduced in the West Virginia legislative session, looking to provide exceptions to vaccine requirements for children entering public school or care. Children are currently required to be vaccinated for chickenpox, hepatitis B, measles, meningitis, mumps, diphtheria, polio, rubella, tetanus and whooping cough. Exemptions can only be approved by the state for specific issues. Lawmakers are looking to add exceptions for religious reasons or personal objections. Sen. Mark Maynard, who is sponsoring one of the bills in the Senate, said the proposal gives families more options about their health. “I think parents should be allowed to decide the destiny of their children, if they feel it really be religious beliefs for whatever reason,” Maynard said. “It is a freedom thing.” Maynard said he is not an “anti-vaxxer,” people who do not believe in vaccinating their children, but has heard many horror stories from his constituents who had negative reactions to vaccines.
Question of The Day!
I have a 22 year old son who has been working full-time due to having no interest in college; however yesterday he told me he’s interested in nutrition or dietitian training! If it were your son where would you tell him to start? ( Of course I am a fan of yours and functional medicine). Ideas? Thank you!

Ignored Warnings: An Unauthorized History of the WHO The World Health Organization (WHO) often finds itself at the center of controversy. It is also considered the “go to” source for authoritative health information. The organization toggles between parroting industry talking points and propaganda, while also producing information that purportedly assists public health awareness. Yet the WHO has a history of ignoring reality and warnings while shaping their policy. Here are a few examples. Vaccinations have been a central focus of WHO for many years. Until recently, they’ve been enthusiastic about vaccine uptake, but in 2019, WHO went “all in” on the manufactured talking point regarding “vaccine hesitancy.” When WHO declared vaccine hesitancy one of their top ten threats to global health, corporate news headlines and government bureaucrats around the world echoed the WHO’s proclamation, despite limited safety testing from a notoriously unscrupulous industry. Unanswered questions surrounding vaccine safety are consistently listed in polls, surveys and research around the world as a reason many people are ‘hesitant’ about vaccination. But what’s there to be hesitant about if vaccines are “safe and effective”? Heck, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) labels vaccines one of the top ten public health achievements in the twentieth century – along with water fluoridation.
There’s a mismatch in the flu shot — and it’s not good news for children This year’s flu vaccine is “not a very good match” for a common strain of the flu that’s especially tough on children, according to the nation’s top infectious disease doctor.”It’s not a very good match for B/Victoria,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, referring to the strain. “It’s not an awful match, but it’s not a very good match.”Children are particularly susceptible to influenza B/Victoria. Fauci said even though the match for B/Victoria isn’t great, a flu shot can still save your child’s life. That’s because the vaccine is a 58% match for B/Victoria, according to CDC data released last week. That means if your child is exposed to B/Victoria, there’s a 58% chance that their flu shot will be well matched to protect against it.
Flu suspected in death of Texas teen, 16: ‘It happened so fast’ In yet another pediatric flu-related death reported in recent weeks, a 16-year-old Texas girl has died after contracting the flu, her family says, noting her passing was a result of complications related to the virus. Teresa “Reese” Termulo, a student at Bishop Lynch High School in East Dallas, died last week after she was sickened by the virus. Her father, a pediatrician, remarked on the swiftness of her death at a Saturday prayer service. “I tell them about how dangerous it could be, that you could die from it,” Cesar Termulo tells patients, he said, according to The Dallas Morning News. “But yet, it’s just a shock that it happened to my own daughter, and it happened so fast.” Officials with the Dallas County of Health and Human Services have not yet confirmed if the teen’s death was related to the flu, the newspaper reported. It’s not clear if she had received the flu vaccine.
Authors say vaccine advocates must harness power of story You know that old saw about how doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result constitutes insanity? Well, a new paper by researchers in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Kansas doesn’t go that far, but it does conclude that to counter anti-vaccine beliefs, those who favor universal vaccination against contagious diseases will have to do more than repeat the evidence denying the link between the MMR vaccine and autism. Instead, they will have to meet anti-vaxxers where they are: on contested ground where anecdotes, examples and conspiracy theories hold greater sway than scientific evidence. Brett Bricker, assistant specialist and assistant director of KU Debate, and Jacob Justice, doctoral student in communication studies, argue that we are living in an era where objective truths have lost their saliency for large segments of the public. Their article, “The Postmodern Medical Paradigm: A Case Study of Anti-MMR Vaccine Arguments,” was published in the Western Journal of Communication.
