Second NY School Threatens to Call CPS Over ‘Non-Compliance’ of Mandatory Vaccination Law A second school in New York, Chippewa Elementary, has sent out a letter to parents threatening the use of Child Protective Services if they refuse to vaccinate their children according to the new mandatory vaccination law. In a letter written by school nurse Patricia Anunziato and signed by principal Patricia Aubrey, it says, “If after 14 calendar days from the effective date of the exclusion notice, parents or guardians have not contacted the school to report the compliance action they have taken, the family may be referred to the Suffolk County Child Protective Services.” PJ Media reached out to the school and was directed to their public relations firm, Syntax. A representative, Mike Ganci, responded with an updated letter that contained an explanation for the CPS threat, but did not take it back. “Unfortunately, the language used in some of the prior letters sent from individual schools was inconsistent and could have been perceived as alarming in regard to the process we would follow with families looking to obtain the proper records. It is not our intent to follow a process where our schools would contact Suffolk County Child Protective Services without exhausting all options beforehand. Please know this was not meant as a scare tactic for our families.”
Scientists call on social media companies to provide better vaccine information Massive anti-vaccination campaigns are taking place all around the world, and experts say social media organizations need to do more to stop them. The Salzburg Statement on Vaccination Acceptance, published Tuesday in the Journal of Health Communication, has called on companies like Google and Facebook to better identify misinformation related to vaccine safety. The statement, penned by a group of global scientists, also recommends government agencies around the world provide better mandatory immunization programs. “We are alarmed that the WHO this year declared vaccine hesitancy a top-ten international public health problem. This is a man-made, dangerous and wholly unnecessary crisis,” Scott Ratzan, founding editor of the Journal of Health Communication and study author, said in a news release. According to the statement, vaccines have helped to save up to 3 million lives by preventing diseases such as hepatitis B, meningitis, measles and polio. Additionally, researchers say that every dollar spent on vaccination brings back $44 in public good.
Jim Corr from The Corrs comes out in support of the anti-vaxx movement IRISH MUSICIAN Jim Corr of The Corrs has seemingly come out in support of the anti-vaxx movement in a move that has seen him come in for brutal criticism online. Corr took to Twitter to voice his support for the anti-vaccination movement, which is led by a growing group of parents and individuals who are refusing to immunise their children against a raft of illnesses. While vaccines have been known to have adverse reactions in a small group of people, scientists have always stressed the benefits far outweigh the risks in this regard. Despite this, the number of people vaccinated against measles has been falling in countries like the US, which recently reported its first measles death in 12 years. With measles infections are their highest since the diseasd was first eradicated, Corr took to Twitter to offer his view on the subject, writing: “What if we were actually meant to get mild childhood illnesses like Measles so as to help prime our immune systems into fighting much greater diseases in later life?”
Antidepressants reduce deaths by more than a third in patients with diabetes Antidepressants reduce deaths by more than a third in patients with diabetes and depression, according to a study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. People with diabetes are two to three times more likely to have depression than people without diabetes, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Half to three-quarters of people with diabetes and depression go undiagnosed, despite therapy and medicine being very effective. “The incidence of major depressive disorder amongst individuals with diabetes is significantly greater than the general population,” said the study’s corresponding author, Vincent Chin-Hung Chen, Professor, of Chiayi Chang Gung Memorial Hospital and Chang Gung University in Puzi, Taiwan. “Diabetes and depression each independently contribute to increasing total mortality.”
Doctor Under Investigation Could Lose License to Practice Medicine for Praying with Some Patients A doctor in the UK is being investigated by the General Medical Council (GMC) because a complaint was made against him for praying with his patients. Dr. Richard Scott is a General Practitioner at Bethesda Medical Centre in Margate, Kent. Dr. Scott states that he only prays with about one out of every 40 patients, and that he always asks for their permission first. Of those he asks, about 90% accept, and the ones who do not, he respects their right to refuse. The complaint to the General Medical Council was allegedly not made by any of his patients, but by an “acquaintance” of one of his patients, who then worked with The National Secular Society (NSS) to lodge the complaint. The NSS allegedly wrote that a “highly vulnerable patient” was uneasy with the use of prayer during a consultation. NSS chief executive Stephen Evans reportedly confirmed that the complaint came from someone known to the patient rather than the patient themselves.

Norma Erickson, President of SaneVax (2010-pres), was once a freelance writer and independent business consultant. Her primary concentration was providing information surrounding the vaccination controversy. Being a firm believer in fair and balanced journalism, research and fact-finding were always top priorities.

She strongly believes every medical consumer has the right to complete and accurate information regarding the risks as well as the benefits of vaccines prior to deciding whether a particular vaccine is right for them. Her personal mission is to provide that information in a clear, concise, easy to understand format, so people are able to make informed decisions about their health and well-being.
Journeys From Trust to Tragedy The sole purpose of this book is to give a voice to all of the families around the world who found themselves dealing with mysterious new medical symptoms after HPV vaccine administration. Whether HPV vaccines caused or triggered these new symptoms or not is irrelevant. The fact is the vast majority of them are suffering from real medical conditions. This needs to be acknowledged. Diagnostic criteria need to be established. Effective treatment protocols need to be developed. Anything less than this is a crime against humanity.
The complete list of alternatives to all Google products With growing concerns over online privacy and securing personal data, more people than ever are considering alternatives to Google products. After all, Google’s business model essentially revolves around data collection and advertisements, both of which infringe on your privacy. More data means better (targeted) ads and more revenue.

A growing number of people are seeking alternatives to Google products that respect their privacy and data.
