We came across this YouTube video, Vaccines Have Elements of Neurotoxins and Pollutants, on the blog, My News Page. We think this should be required viewing before any parent decides whether or not they want to vaccinate their child.
We know there are two sides to every issue and we respect an individual’s right to choose what is best for his/her child. However, we think everyone should be informed any time a foreign substance is introduced into a child’s body. We should not rely on doctors to provide us with this information.
The point that we found most enlightening was that a child’s immune system is not fully formed until he/she is 3 years old. Therefore, if a parent decides to vaccinate, it is likely better to wait until a child is at least 3 years old, versus vaccinating from the first day of life as is often the case now.
We believe that vaccinating before the immune system is fully formed is contributing to the rise in illnesses like autism, allergies, asthma, ADHD, and autoimmune diseases.
Nancy Turner Banks, MD, MBA
Dr. Nancy Banks is a graduate of Harvard Medical School. As a senior medical student she was awarded a scholarship from the American College of Surgeons to study surgery and tropical medicine at the Benin Medical College in Benin, Nigeria. She was a Galloway Fellow in gynecological oncology at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Banks also holds a masters degree in finance.
Banks spent 25 years practicing general obstetrics and gynecology during which she was also the director of outpatient gynecology at The North General Hospital in Harlem, New York and served as an attending physician at not only North General, but Nyack, Hospital in Nyack, New York, The Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center and the Mt. Sinai Hospital and Medical Center.
After being challenged with two back to back life threatening illnesses, Dr. Banks realized that she would have to look outside of her own discipline of allopathic medicine to learn how to heal. This was her personal “dark night of the soul”. It was a journey that gave her the courage to question the fundamental assumptions and mythologies of western medicine. Dr. Banks resides in Bowie MD where she continues to support others in their search for health knowledge by lecturing and writing on current health, social, political and economic topics.
