Canada - An anti-vaccine symposium will be held today at Simon Fraser University's downtown Vancouver, British Columbia (BC) campus. The summit will feature doctors and other experts who question the effectiveness and safety of vaccines and also the first-hand stories of parents whose children suffered adverse vaccine reactions.
The overall theme of the conference is that many vaccines are improperly regulated and not safe, but that the medical system is still in support of them. Dr. Monika Naus, a medical director with the BC Centre for Disease Control, admitted to CBC News that not all vaccines are 100 per cent safe all of the time. Joel Lord, founder and director of The Vaccine Resistance Movement, told CBC news that, "The forum is primarily designed to enable parents to begin to navigate their way out of the toxic labyrinth of Western allopathic medicine."
Ted Kuntz blames vaccines for his son Josh's condition and will share his and Josh's story at the Vaccine Summit. When Josh was five months old, he received a whooping cough vaccine. Ted says that Josh soon developed an uncontrollable seizure disorder that he has now had to live with for 28 years. Kuntz told CBC News that, "Josh has the mental capacity of a two-year-old. He requires 24-hour care, and his life has been changed because of it and so has mine," and added, "I spent 10 years reading the medical literature on vaccines and vaccine damage, and reached a conclusion that vaccines are not as safe or as effective as we are told they are."
