Posted @withrepost • @robertfkennedyjr The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has repeatedly asked CDC to create studies which explain, "How do child health outcomes compare between fully vaccinated and unvaccinated children?" During a November 2012 Congressional hearing on autism before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Dr. Coleen Boyle, the Director of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, gave evasive answers to lawmakers pressing her on this point. After considerable badgering, she finally stated, "We have not studied vaccinated versus unvaccinated children." That was perjury. Boyle knew that CDC had commissioned an in-house researcher, Thomas Verstraeten to perform vaccinated/unvaccinated study on CDC’s giant Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) in 1999 (I summarize Verstraeten’s secret findings on slide 2). Verstraeten found a dramatic link between mercury-containing hepatitis B vaccines and several neurological injuries including autism and prepared the study for publication. CDC shared Verstraeten’s analysis with the four vaccine makers but kept it secret from the American public. The world’s largest vaccine maker GSK whisked Verstraeten off to a sinecure in Brussels and CDC handed his raw data to his CDC boss Frank Destefano and another researcher, Robert Davis who served as a vaccine industry consultant. Those two men tortured the data for 4 years ,removing all unvaccinated children,to bury the autism signal before publishing a sanitized version purporting to exculpate the vaccine.CDC cut off public access to the VSD and aggressively blocks any attempts by researchers to study health outcomes in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated populations. Despite CDC's efforts at suppression, independent scientists and research institutions (including UCLA) have managed to conduct and publish several additional vaccinated/unvaccinated studies since 1999. Those studies indicate high incidence of chronic diseases and brain and immune system injuries among vaccinated compared to unvaccinated cohorts. I summarize some of these reports in this week’s posts.
📸 Nature v Instagram 📸 | Arizona (2019) In 2017, @outsidemagazine reported on how Instagram is impacting the outdoors citing Horseshoe Bend as an example. They wrote: “Even if you’ve never heard of Horseshoe Bend, you’ve likely seen the scenic stretch of river on Instagram. The horseshoebend hashtag has been used more than 425,000 times, and officials say it’s a big reason why Glen Canyon attracted 4.2 million visitors in 2018—nearly double the 2.1 million visitors it saw in 2010, the year Instagram was founded.” We hesitated to even visit Horseshoe Bend, but it was on our way, so we decided to stop off and cast an informed vote.
Look. There's no denying that Horseshoe Bend is a fantastic feat of nature (I mean... just look at it). But there is something sad about it, too. It's nature obstructed by construction and a massive parking lot. Nature seen primarily through a phone screen. Nature experienced mostly so it can be bragged about later. Nature no more significant than any stretch of river but one that attracts WAY too many people.
I've struggled a lot with how to share responsibly as I document our Southwestern roadtrip. The US National Parks are getting to the point where they're loved to death and I'm not so sure how to share experiences (it’s literally my job) without making the problem just a little bit worse. For this trip in particular, I've made a commitment to geotagging parks rather than specific locations and highlighting alternatives to overcrowded destinations, but I’m sure I could be doing more. Anyone have suggestions for what else we should be doing to keep wild places wild in what seems to be a terrifying phase in human history?

@rolliestucson did not disappoint today on Taco Tuesday! 😍 Thanks for the hospitality Mateo 🙌🌮
This week started with me standing at a fork in the road and I turned right down Juicing Avenue. I had the juicer on my shelf for way too long. It has me thinking about what else is sitting on my shelf that I need to use....Today is our Best Yet! Go make it happen!
