-- that premiered city it's the after the show Michelle okay.
Eve I think I would talk to -- above it down in.
Birmingham Alabama we're gonna go tomorrow and tomorrow you're gonna be.
We want to -- California for a short.
Less than 48 hours to my college reunion at Stanford yeah honor I'm wearing the cardinal colored.
You need to have AIG patronage of talent there oh yeah no doubt there on their second boondoggle.
They're going up enough department the country's.
I don't be partaking although I could because I'm on my private time.
That's right but we have to go but to put ladies are coming back the girls guys just scan have a great.
We'll see you Monday you know.
Hot pockets and caught.
Both of teachers the right to do what we're discussing earlier was this new mandated policy and state of New Jersey.
Where kids six months to five years old are mandated now amongst other vaccines to get the flu shot.
And you know this may be crossing the line according to some people because the flu shot -- I don't know that should be mandatory as I if you look at the package insert and he's seen what a Kurds in temple association after these vaccines.
You see severe gastrointestinal and respiratory distress.
You see brain inflammation.
BC paralysis young parade devastating autoimmune issues.
So with the parents of New Jersey you're saying give us a choice flu does not affect most children.
And when it does it's not deadly so.
Let me have my child at home in bed for a few days and let me make patrol.
And you know what position will say it'll say well look we can get the vaccine as many people as possible fewer people won't get the flu and some people do -- like -- forget the stat I think it's 40000 people a year in tonight's enough I think -- such -- cracked up -- that's been emblazoned in my.
I read somewhere.
Well let me tell you that in New Jersey the most recent data we have available.
One child under the age of nine died of the flu in 2004 and one child in 2005.
So the flu it's not -- and not in New Jersey.
-- and I understand this -- -- because.
Not so sure I would want to be mandated for my kids to get flu shot until I had a couple questions answered.
For instance you can there's couple of -- right into the -- missed one which is a -- virus actually okay -- -- that has other issues with it but there's no Mercury and that one right -- -- -- So there -- other complications that but I guess I'm wondering how you feel about the other vaccinations for more deadly.
It's a week.
Our belief is that and what's going on in New Jersey -- as a rally on October 16.
The New Jersey coalition for vaccination choice holding a rally in Trenton.
And we feel.
That these are decisions to be -- between parents and their medical doctors not to be mandated by the government and we understand the seriousness.
Of polio and other diseases however we can't ignore.
The white elephant -- the pink elephant in the room which is the chronic illness in our children in this country.
The rates of asthma the rates of asthma there were a one and six children with a developmental disorder in this country.
Ought to send ADD ADHD.
This is not the time to be mandating more vaccines the polling decision came out this past year where -- Hannah poling.
Eight shots on one day ended up with autism the government conceded to a a connection between vaccines and often and in her case.
Mandate more vaccines at this time.
We're the only.
New Jersey right now the only place in the world.
With the flu shot has been mandated and other countries don't do this other countries do not mandate vaccines the way to unite this thing up then if public health.
Versus private decision.
Well actually I think that this is absolutely huge public health issue for our children it the national public health catastrophe he had.
It's just so many children that have been.
-- that are chronically ill I it is -- you link all that to vaccinations.
You know we believe that there are many things happening but if you look at act.
This kind of exposure.
That all children.
Are required to receive regardless of where they live geographically.
That genetically from their parents at different diet taxpayers.
Medical can't I didn't have to find some other exposure.
That occurred at the same time in history that expecting all of our children in his a lot of people would act argue that its environmental.
For instance with asthma.
They would say that -- they're made you know we don't know what it is but god only knows because of all the stuff that's going on in -- I don't.
What's interesting is that.
And there have been some small studies done on vaccinated versus unvaccinated children and they don't find the high rates of allergies asthma.
-- developmental disabilities in the unvaccinated population that government at the United States needs to do a full fledged study.
On the unvaccinated population versus the -- population.
In my opinion they're afraid to do that they don't want to see the results.
Of that type of study so you both at two children and you both.
They both have chronic.
My my it's my daughter was diagnosed with -- on with them on to some with asthma.
My son with autism and chronic sinusitis.
And with them asthma and chronic sinusitis at at eighteen months.
We -- some acupuncture did miracles for more hits can gifts -- for his condition.
But some -- -- -- Fisher wrote a brilliant book number of years ago was shot in the dark and I read that -- And I'm I just boiled because ice it was on the pertussis vaccine that connection between the pertussis vaccine an asthma.
And I thought my god looking at my history.
I should have been cautioned.
Especially about the pertussis vaccine that -- history my history of autoimmune in it in me personally in my family.
That they should've been cautioned and backs needing both of my children.
And -- I wasn't told I read it in a ball.
And your children and -- seven and five and both diagnosed with severe inflammatory bowel disease and this is a condition that affects.
Over two thirds of autistic children we now that there is a peak development went window for children between ages zero and three.
And your gastrointestinal tract 80% of your immune system resides there.
If you have severe test so intestinal problems.
It is very likely to affect your ignorant developmental.
Growth and development but they do not have autism doesn't count them.
But they have.
Something that links them to other kids up his autistic kids have this I have absolutely I think that the issue for us is that parents are not getting balanced information.
Pediatricians need to see 35 patients just to break you sent.
And so there's not enough not my time in the day for doctors to be able to take parents through.
See the full incomplete information so that they can then there's the risk reward trade off.
And it becomes such a more complicated issue because that your health insurance is involved in all of this because that.
Is that determines the amount of time that a doctor can actually spend a -- it was going to pay for -- had to that are that are and I had two small children to and I know what they've been immunized.
At one point doctors that she's going to five shots today and I 1.
You know can we split those supple and Gretchen our medical doctors out there and it -- in that -- Imus is latest book doctor Larry Rosen who's at New Jersey.
Hasn't altered vaccine schedule.
And he recommends no more than one at a time spread them out.
And there's a lot of smart doctor visits and that brings it back to my point about it will health insurance cover them all those different and that's where we need to take the health care our children back into our own hands and say you know -- we aren't going to do the shots -- at a time and we aren't going to spend that week.
Are going to do everything possible to protect our children and keep them healthy for many of these diseases are not deadly.
Okay so I think it needs to be parents' choice whether I got chickenpox did you get -- -- all fall quite like the same time.
To light it.
Just thought you know at least should approve it absolutely you know and it's -- can still get chicken -- even though they get the vaccine death packet data the flip side of that thing -- though.
Are so you are launching your own piece of legislation I want an accurate -- absolutely yes that's Charlie.
And evocative assemblywoman in New Jersey Bergen county who is the primary sponsor of this bill.
It is a tremendous -- it provides for the conscientious exemptions and to mandatory vaccination.
And it is it is we have a number of co sponsors and sponsors and New Jersey were going to be thanking them at this at Trenton rally.
And we -- -- we have over 500 people registered so we're we're very excited and Gretchen.
We want to hear vaccines talked about in the presidential -- we want late Senator McCain to address this we want Senator Obama to address this we have eight country.
Of chronically ill children we wanted to ask we want to talk about it and it's too controversial.
No one wants tapping into town on the time for personal courage that truly we were very disturbed hasn't entered the debate.
And we have a question for senators Obama and McCain.
Posed by the vaccine safety not to some communities and that is.
Are you willing to.
To issued two executive orders within 100 days entering office the first.
You issue a moratorium on adding any new vaccines to the childhood recommended schedule.
And two when you remove all by -- salt from vaccines by January 1 2010.
We think those are received serious all finance -- -- well look I may add that Claudine.
And Louise great to speak with you today you can be there at right after the show show.
We'll see you coffee on Monday -- we'll see you back here.
