Over one million people in Haiti have been made homeless by the recent earthquake that hit the island two weeks ago, but so far many of them find themselves on the outside looking in when it comes to getting food. In fact, U.N. security forces recently fired pepper spray into the air in an effort to disperse the thousands of men, women and children jostling for food outside the wrecked presidential palace in Port-au-Prince. But while they may not be able to get the food and water that they need, if the WHO has their way, the people of Haiti will soon be vaccinated for a whole array of diseases. According to a new report by the World Health Organization, the plan is to vaccinate all them for tetanus, measles, diphtheria, polio and pertussis as quickly as possible. In addition, the report also mentions the H1N1 swine flu as a potential threat in Haiti, so presumably the WHO plans to get most of the Haitian population to take that vaccine as well.
The document is entitled "Earthquake: Haiti - Public health risk assessment and interventions" and it is dated January 2010. It outlines a comprehensive plan to improve health conditions in Haiti, but unfortunately it also contains recommendations that the people of Haiti receive a full battery of vaccinations as quickly as possible.
So why is that such a bad thing?
Well, the truth is that vaccines contain a whole stew of things that are very bad for humans. Most vaccines contain mercury, which is the second most toxic substance on earth. They also contain things like formaldehyde, aluminum, polysorbate 80, animal tissues and all kinds of other nasty chemicals and organic materials.
